Lolo Jones has meltdown on Today Show (video)

There’s a reason some people have started calling American Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones “coco loco.” She is cocoa, and a bit loco. The world’s second most fanous athlete-virgin (Tim Tebow is clearly #1) had a breakdown on NBC’s the Today show.

To be fair the New York Times article she’s referring to was a bit unfair, and inaccurate to boot. Lolo Jones is not truly the Anna Kournikova of track; even though yes she receives more attention than other track & field stars due to her looks.

 

“I think it was crazy just because it was two days before I competed, and then the fact that it was from a US media,’’ Jones said on The Today Show as she nearly broke into tears. “They should be supporting our US Olympic athletes and instead they just ripped me to shreds. I just thought that that was crazy because I worked six days a week, every day, for four years for a 12-second race and the fact that they just tore me apart, which is heartbreaking.
