FBN’s Sandra Smith Ready to Cheer on ‘Running Mate’ Lolo Jones

Today she turns 30, and tomorrow Lolo Jones begins her quest for gold in the 100m Hurdles at the London games. Jones was the favorite in the event at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but came in 7th after clipping the 9th hurdle.

Earlier in her career, Jones was a standout at LSU winning three NCAA titles. One of her LSU teammates was Fox Business Network correspondent Sandra Smith, who will be cheering her on.

In our Media Beat interview earlier this year, Smith talked about being a student-athlete at LSU and how it prepared her for the real world. “It challenges you, it makes you smarter, it makes you more aggressive.”
