About Lolo
Jones had spinal surgery in 2011, exactly one year out from the 2012 Olympic final where she finished fourth, to correct a tethered spine. The spinal condition is believed to have been a factor in her string of recent injuries. She was the first woman ever to claim back-to-back World Indoor titles in the 60m hurdles while setting an American record in the process. Jones finished her career at LSU as a three-time national champion and 11-time All-American, where she ranks among the top-three all-time at LSU in both the 60m and 100m hurdles. Following the 2012 Olympics, Jones tried out and made the USA Bobsled team as a push athlete. Jones also competed in the bobsled at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Jones was named Gatorade Midwest Athlete of the year and holds the 100mH record for the state of Iowa (13.40). She is of French, African-American, Native American and Norwegian descent. Her given name is Lori. She considers speed off the final hurdle one of her greatest strengths. She was named 2008 Visa Humanitarian Athlete of the Year after donating her $4,000 in prize money from the Olympic Trials to a fund assisting Renee Trout, a single mother from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who was a victim of the Iowa floods. Jones' sponsors each matched Jones' $4,000 prize, bringing the total donation to $12,000. She also gave each girl on Theodore Roosevelt High School track team a pair of spikes and made a $3,000 donation to the school to repair the track and buy hurdles while in town for the Drake Relays. She is the most followed U.S. track & field athlete on Twitter.
