Lolo Jones

Olympic track & field athlete Lori “Lolo” Jones made more headlines for being celibate until marriage than for her performance at the 2012 London Olympics. While she missed her shot at winning the 100-meter hurdles, her decision to join the USA bobsled team turned things around.

On Friday, Jones and her teammate Jazmine Fenlator took home the silver medal at the World Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in the two-woman bobsled. The two beat out fellow Olympian and 4x100-meter relay gold medalist Tianna Madison by .01 seconds. This was the first bobsledding competition for both runners.

"I'm kind of in shock," Jones told ESPN. “I'm so used to just so relying on myself. I've never experienced this level of having a team before." Congratulations, Lolo!
