Lolo Jones makes US Bobsled team.

An Olympic medal is still missing from Lolo Jonesí trophy case, so the track and field hurdler decided to mix things up and attack from a different angle: In a bobsled.

Jones clipped a hurdle in 100m hurdles final and finished seventh at the Beijing Games. In London she ran a clean race but placed fourth.

This week, Jones pushed a bobsled on wheels in Lake Placid. Numbers were crunched and the competitorsí times were analyzed. The U.S. coaching staff would select the athletes that would compete this season.

You know where this is going. Jones made the team.

If she wins a medal, like the article says, it would put her in some rare company.

Is she the one that had a massive tantrum?

I'm guessing she qualified because she could run the bobsled the quickest out of anyone. Every second lost at the top is multiplied by three at the bottom. Key to get a quick start.
