Lolo Jones Hurdles... to Victory?

by at . Comments

She's received attention throughout these Olympic Games for her great looks and unusual background (she's a virgin!!!).

But Lolo Jones had a chance today to quiet the critics and make headlines for her actual exploits on the track. Did the sprinter make up for her 2008 stumble and earn a Medal in today's 100-meter hurdles?

Unfortunately... no.

Jones finished in fourth place by one-hundredth of a second, crossing the finish line in 12.58 seconds. But it was still a strong event for the U.S. team: Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells finished in second and third place, respectively.

Australia's Sally Pearson took the Gold with an Olympic record time of 12.35. But might she date Tim Tebow?

See. Jones might end up a winner after all.

Good grief, leave it be. She's not making excuses, she's done the best she can do. No one is perfect, and if you have something against her that's on you. She obviously did well enough to make it to the olympics. Even the best of the best can fail but they just keep on trying until they accomplish what they set out to do and I believe she's no different.

Her achievements, or the extreme lack of, makes me laugh and then yawn. Yawn...

Her sponsors will realise her for the loud brash loser that she is and bail. If they had any sense they would not want to be associated with this whiny loud mouth.

Lolo jones is an underachieving and talentless shameful excuse for an athlete. She does not have the goods to back up that big mouth...truly pathetic.

Her speech after the semifinal was annoying. She acted like a victim. It wasn't anyone's fault she tripped on the hurdle, it happens but to be angry at people who comment on it & then vent at the Olympics is absurd.
