Lolo Jones Makes the U.S. Olympic Bobsled Team

At USA Today, "Lolo Jones handles the heat over bobsled selection."

I haven't been very impressed with Ms. Jones, but I guess she's got some supporters out there. Still, making the bobsled team on your fame is kinda unfair to those who worked years at the sport.

Here's the video from 2008 in Beijing, where Jones clipped the second to the last hurdle and lost an Olympics gold medal: "Athletics - Women's 100M Hurdles - Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games." She's never gotten over that.

More at CBS News, "Lolo Jones' selection to Olympic bobsled team criticized."
