For today’s Black History Month figure, we profile Lolo Jones. Even though the 2012 London Olympics proved to be a less than stellar showing for the talented track star, Jones is not easily defeated. As soon as the Olympics were over, she started training for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi where she will compete in the bobsledding competition. She had never bobsledded in her life but she knew she wanted a chance at winning gold and it was the best competition for someone with track experience. We will all be rooting for Lolo Jones and the American athletes as they compete in the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi starting February 7th.
