Famous hurdler (and even more famous virgin) Lolo Jones failed to medal at two consecutive Summer Olympics. Now, she may get another chance—only this time, it’ll be a little chillier outside. Jones was announced as one of the 24 members of the U.S. bobsled team Thursday. As part of the elite squad, she’s eligible to compete on the World Cup circuit this winter and, potentially, at the 2014 Sochi Games. Surprisingly, she’s not the only track and field star to have made the transition to the sled. Sprint gold medalist Tianna Madison was also named to the team.
