Track and field sensation Lolo Jones was recruited to the sport of bobsled after the 2012 London Games. Jones said it "felt like someone put me in a can and threw me off of Mt. Everest" after her first trip in a sled. The 100-m hurdle Olympian successfully transferred her skills to the ice and was named to the women's bobsled national team just weeks after trying the sport.
Her favorite quote is actually one of her own:"I'm inspired by failure. The process of defeat- picking yourself back up again is the hardest thing in the world."
Read about her accomplishments in track and field here.
