Lolo Jones will get another shot at an Olympic medal.  On Sunday, Jones was one of 3 push athletes selected to the United States bobsled team.

Jones has twice competed in the 100 meter hurdles in the summer Olympics.  With a lead in 2008, she stumbled on a hurdle and failed to medal.  She finished just off the podium in 4th in the London games.

Jones and sprinter Lauryn Williams will become the ninth and 10th Americans to compete in the Summer and Winter Olympics.
