Lolo Jones has made it to the Olympic team (YAY!), coming in third in the women’s 100-meter hurdles final, with a time of 12.86 seconds behind Dawn Harper and Kelli Wells on Saturday. It will be great for Jones to get a second chance after her disastrous fall in Beijing! Jones has been nursing herself back after a surgery last August and a pair of hamstring injuries.
“I had my sports psychologist on speed dial one, my pastor on speed dial two and my mom on speed dial three. It was crazy.”
“I woke up (Saturday morning) and I didn’t even think I’d make the team,” said Jones, one day after a disappointing start in a prelim that cause her to break the dreaded 13-second barrier.
“I was fighting a constant head battle, just trying to find the confidence.
“I’m just thrilled to have another shot.”
