Resurrection: Track & Field Star Lolo Jones Claims Big U.S. Open and Russian Winter Meet Victories, Hurdles Toward London
Lolo Jones is no stranger to obstacles. Oakley’s Track & Field star, the heavy favorite in the 100 hurdles at the 2008 Olympics, has endured a tumultuous past year. Finding strength to recover physically and psychologically from her spine surgery in August proved to be one of her career’s most immense challenges. But in a show of remarkable recovery, Lolo returned to the scene with an aura of dominance, claiming a resounding victory in the 50-meter hurdles with a 6.78 second finish over Tiffany Porter at the U.S. Open late January.
She’s the top ranked women’s golfer in the world. And she’s thriving in the spotlight. Oakley’s LPGA star, Yani Tseng, displayed her nerves of steel after a thrilling final hole on Sunday at the LPGA Thailand – fending off a possible playoff after fellow Oakley star Ai Miyazato made a final charge with a close approach. Her eventual one-stroke victory following a killer 100-yard shot, and a tap-in putt for birdie, dazzled the Thai crowd.
