    Larry, who are you fooling. Lolo refused to congratulate Harper after she won gold in 2008. What teammate just walks off after her teammate succeeds where she fails? Jones did!
    Then she did it again last week. To her this is about TeamLOLO.

    She has no class and no medals. And now that she's been exposed she'll soon have no endorsements. She is the Anna Kounikova of running. And since the media made her they'll try to defend their bias by running interference for her.
    The media and Lolo are a total disgrace.

    Lolo is a class act. The articles written about her are just jealous player haters and racists and in some cases aethiests. She's still tops in my book. I mean put here accomplishment into a real perspective: out of at least 3 billion women in the world she places 4th in the Olympic Hurdle event, only 3 other women beat her. Looking at her record, one couldn't honestly belittle her accomplishments: 11-time all-American at Louisiana State University and the current American record-holder in the indoor hurdles, a two-time world indoor champion, Two Olympics in a row and all barely a year to the month after surgery on her spine, and in the wake of two hamstring injuries. I say she rocks, and the journalist writing this negativity probably couldn't out run my grandmother
