Lolo Jones Won A Gold Medal (In World Championship Bobsled)

Lolo Jones still has yet to win a gold medal in the Olympics, but today, she added a new and extra random addition to her small pile of world championship medals—she now has two golds for 60m hurdles, and one for the combined bobsled-skeleton team event at the Swiss winter world championships. She was the brakewoman (like Sanka Coffie, in Cool Runnings) and helped the U.S. team edge Germany by .24 seconds.

It may not be the harsh rebuke to her various detractors that an Olympic gold medal in hurdling would have provided those many moons ago, but it does make one thing clear: it's not that hard to bobsled, is it? Jones learned how to do it at a world champion level in about three months.
