Resurrection: Track & Field Star Lolo Jones Claims Big U.S. Open and Russian Winter Meet Victories, Hurdles Toward London
Lolo Jones is no stranger to obstacles. Oakley’s Track & Field star, the heavy favorite in the 100 hurdles at the 2008 Olympics, has endured a tumultuous past year. Finding strength to recover physically and psychologically from her spine surgery in August proved to be one of her career’s most immense challenges. But in a show of remarkable recovery, Lolo returned to the scene with an aura of dominance, claiming a resounding victory in the 50-meter hurdles with a 6.78 second finish over Tiffany Porter at the U.S. Open late January.
