Lolo Jones is once again talking about her Olympic dreams and this time she is going to 2014 Sochi Olympics. After being picked for the Team USA bobsledding team, the athlete is once again in front of the cameras talking about her dream to win the gold. On Tuesday the athlete was on the Today show discussing how her new Olympic dream has brought her a fresh start.
“So they really did give me a fresh start,” said Lolo Jones about her teammates. “I know you can’t change the past, but knowing I hit a hurdle and got fourth place, I wouldn't change it for the fact I know it led to me to be here.”
The athlete is so tight with her new crew that she even dishes on the name the athletes call themselves. Apparently the USA bobsledding team references themselves as “The Wolfpack.”
Looking to win gold, the bobsledding team has plenty of speed on their side. With athletes like Lolo Jones willing to push the sled and give the necessary jump before the track, the team has a good chance to medal.
One of the most competitive sports in Sochi will be bobsledding. Countries from around the globe are sending their best athletes too. Offering topnotch competition, the team will need to be the fastest on the course to win. And maybe with Lolo Jones offering the initial push off, the team will have a chance to be number one.
