U.S. Bobsledders Lauryn Williams and Lolo Jones
Why you should watch: LoLo Jones became one of the most polarizing picks for Sochi when she was selected as a runner on the U.S. bobsledding team. An American track and field star, she specializes in the 60- and 100-meter hurdles but came up short of medals in the Summer Olympics. You know you are seriously committed to a gold medal when you switch sports — and seasons — to compete. Jones will make history as one of 10 athletes to compete in both the Winter and Summer Olympic Games.
Jones’ Sochi sledding teammate Lauryn Williams is the one poised to make even more exciting history: If Williams wins a gold medal in Sochi, she’ll be the first American woman to have golds from the Summer and Winter Games. Williams won a silver medal in the 100-meter in Athens in 2004 and gold in the 4x100 relay in London.
