At yesterday’s Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon, Lolo Jones secured a spot on the U.S. squad heading to London when she finished third in the women’s 100-meter hurdles final in 12.86 seconds — securing the final slot available. For the past year, Lolo’s stayed in the news and for good reason: she’s undeniably hot. Looking like the long lost sister of Kidada and Rashida, the track star from Des Moines with the infectious smile is a triple-threat, possessing speed, being stunningly sexy and a cool sense of humor, as shown daily on her Twitter. More admirably, she fought back from surgery last August and a pair of hamstring injuries to become an Olympian for the second consecutive time.
Let’s celebrate her accomplishment the best way we know how: by admiring her in all her grandeur. Next time we see her, she’ll most likely be moving too fast to catch of good glimpse of her.
