    (August 5, 1982- )
    Born in Des Moines, Iowa
    Real name is Lori Jones
    Hurdler
    Competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics and the 2007 World Championships in Athletics
    Gold medalist in the 60 meter hurdles at the 2008 and 2010 World Indoor Championships in Athletics
    She is called Lolo because she was originally named Lori by her mother, who is also named Lori.
    She has a tendency to falter during major competitions.
    At the 2008 Summer Olympics, she was favored to win in the 110 meter hurdles. She stumbled on the next to last hurdle while in the lead, and finished in seventh. She was visibly upset following the race.
    At the 2009 US Championships, she was involved in a collision during a semifinal heat, denying her of a chance to compete at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics.
    She has an endorsement deal with ASICS.
    She was an 11-time All-American and a 6-time SEC champion while competing at LSU.
    Growing up, her mother, who was single with several children, would often have two jobs at once while her father spent time either in the Air Force or in prison. Her family would at one point live in the basement of a church.
    She ended up living with four other families during her time in high school due to her desire to attend a high school with a track.
    She opted to continue with her hurdling aspirations after college and not simply fall back on her economics degree.
    Her donations to charity have included improvements to her high school's track program and a single mother who was affected by flooding in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2008.
    She posed naked for the 'Body Issue' of ESPN The Magazine (2009).
