In an Instagram video captioned “Dear diary,” Lolo Jones reflected days after being left off the Olympic bobsled team.
The video was posted late Wednesday night, filmed at what Jones said was her first track and field practice since ending her bobsled season (and maybe her bobsled career).
“It was really hard for me to come back because I just felt embarrassed to be here, you know?” Jones said. “Training for the Winter Olympics, I gave up track and field for a year. To not make the team was very frustrating. You don’t make it. You just feel like you don’t have what it takes.”
Jones, 35, faces an incredibly difficult path to making the 2020 Olympic team in the 100m hurdles.
