The U.S. Olympic bobsled team is getting some help from track stars Lolo Jones and Lauryn Williams, The Associated Press reports.
Jones, who specialized in hurdling, and Williams, a gold medal sprinter, were among the nine women chosen for the national team on Saturday. Theaccomplishment is particularly notable for Williams, who had never touched a bobsled until July.
There's only eight months to go until the Winter Olympics, and two-time Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones has offended her new bobsled teammates.
On Monday, Jones posted a Vine video cheekily complaining about her $741.84 check from the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation, which decides pay based on performance results. "Several months with bobsled season. The whole season. That's it. I'm going to be a little late on my rent this month," Jones said.
