Lolo Jones Barely Makes Finals

Team U.S.A.’s most-famous virgin was almost its biggest choke. Lolo Jones just barely qualified for the 100m hurdles Tuesday, sneaking into the last spot after being the “fastest loser” in her semifinal heat. The semifinal round consists of three heats.

Running a 12.71-second race, Jones qualified by the thin margin of four 100ths of a second.
