U.S. Olympic hopeful Lolo Jones has an amazing story. She was raised by a single mother, and has four siblings. Lolo’s mom worked two (sometimes three) jobs to support her children. Lolo started running track in grade school, and has been doing so ever since.
Lolo failed to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team in 2004, but she did not let that stop her. With hard work and determination, she was able to gain the #1 hurdle ranking for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. She ended up placing 7th in 2008, and is determined to do better at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Good Luck, Lolo! I’ll be cheering you on from my living room.
