Inspiration From Lolo Jones

After an injury in July 2013 led her to retire from track and field, Williams felt “dejected.” But Olympian hurdler Lolo Jones helped Williams see the light. Jones piqued Williams’ interest in bobsledding. She and her “bum leg” entered the Push Championships and she finished in third place in her first competitive race.
