Former LSU Track Star Lolo Jones has been selected to be apart of the U.S. Bobsled team that will compete in next month's Sochi Winter Olympics. Per ESPN...
quote:

Jones and Williams -- both Summer Olympic veterans -- were among the selections Sunday night for the U.S. Olympic bobsled team, putting them in position to join a very exclusive club. Barring something unforeseen, they will become the ninth and 10th Americans to compete in both the summer and winter versions of the Games when they compete at the Sochi Olympics next month.

Jones, Williams and Aja Evans were the three women chosen out of a six-woman pool for the push athlete spots, that word coming at a team meeting where half the candidates saw their Olympic dreams realized and the other half saw them come to a quiet end.

"I was definitely very nervous entering the room," Jones said. "I'm usually used to looking up at a screen after I cross the finish line to see the results. You're just like anxious, armpits are sweating, don't know what's going to happen."
