Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones is officially a winter sports world champ after helping the U.S. win the combined bobsled-skeleton team event in Switzerland Sunday. She and Elana Meyers contributed their efforts to the two-woman bobsled portion of the event as the team held off the Germans by 0.24 seconds to take the title.

Lolo and Meyers finished third in the two-woman sled, former world champ Steve Holcomb, who lost his title earlier on Sunday, finished third during his portion along with brakeman Curtis Tomasevicz, and John Daly was seventh in men’s skeleton.

    Hey Matt: “***Her*** and Elana Meyers contributed their efforts…” ??? Are you kidding me? And you actually write for a living?

      Yes. And quite successfully, too.

        Jesus….You could at least acknowledge the fact that you made a major grammar error, and that he was correct in his criticism. Instead of getting defensive, just own up to your mistake. I too think it is pretty ridiculous that someone is allowed to write for a major sports news website without knowing basic English grammar.

    What’s with the grammar police?

    Exactly, chill with the grammar yo. I thought this was about how Lolo is still desperately trying to get that gold.
