Tearful Lolo Jones on New York Times: ‘It Was Just Heartbreaking. I Don’t Think I Should Be Ripped Apart by Media’

Lolo Jones, who finished fourth in the finals of the 100M hurdles Tuesday, went on “Today” this morning and, fighting back tears, said a Saturday New York Times story that compared her to Anna Kournikova, the former tennis pro known more for her good looks than her play on the court, didn’t help her performance. Jones tells Savannah Guthrie, “I think it was crazy just because it was two days before I competed, and then the fact that it was from a U.S. media. They should be supporting our U.S. Olympic athletes and instead they just ripped me to shreds.”

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.”
