The Victory Formation:
Just so you are aware, paychecks for those competing on the United States bobsled aren’t the biggest. This is why many of those we typically see every four years are also busy busting their humps at day jobs in between workout sessions. Basically, one cannot live off the money they get paid to be apart of the bobsled team. Even the well-known Lolo Jones. We are going to assume Lolo is just making a little joke. We also believe Lolo has plenty of money left over from the several sponsorships and the enormous exposure she received last summer at the Summer Olympics, even though she failed to medal. Hopefully nobody gets too bent out of shape about this, but Lolo has a way at getting people riled up with her candor. Jones began competing for the US team this past winter, and has a solid chance at making the Olympic team which will compete next winter in Sochi,Russia.

Track & field Olympian Lolo Jones is trying to make it in the world of bobsledding, and she’s finding out the hard way how little the winter sport pays. Jones voiced her displeasure with the $741.84 check she received from the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation in a Vine video posted Monday. That’s a pretty small pay day for seven months of work, but one of the most decorated...
Lolo Jones might be a little short on rent this month. Well, not really.
Jones, who was a star on the U.S. Summer Olympics track and field team, has been training with the U.S. Bobsled team for the past seven months in preparation of the 2014 Winter Olympics. As it turns out, bobsledding doesn’t pay so well.
Jones tweeted out a Vine video on Monday morning, showing off her check...
Track and field Olympian turned bobsled hopeful Lolo Jones is
finding out the hard way how little the winter sport pays. But
other bobsledders aren't too happy about her whining.
Lolo Jones is pretty.
If she wasn’t pretty, a lot of the dumb stuff she says and does wouldn’t be overlooked so easily. Her latest prank gone wrong was complaining about the $741 check she got for bobsledding via Vine. This is the same Lolo Jones who said she was just competing for the love of the sport and to win a gold medal.
“Seven months with bobsled season. The whole season...
You know what sucks as an athlete who is representing his/her country? Working for seven months at a sport, representin…
As most of you know, Lolo Jones has been training to compete in bobsledding at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. The track and field star decided to make the switch so she would not have to wait until the 2016 Olympics to compete for a medal, but she has apparently been unhappy with the [...]
Another day, another Lolo Jones attention whoring attempt.
Nate Robinson has some hops. When you’re 5-foot-9 and can still and can still dunk, suffice it to say you’ve got some pretty good vertical lift on your jump.
So perhaps, then, it’s no surprise that Robinson apparently likes jumping every chance he gets — even when he’s not on the court. Robinson showed off another use for his jump when he posted a video to Vine on Monday...
