SOCHI, RUSSIA - Lolo Jones is getting a new start, and it's not without some tears.
The U.S. track and field star who failed to win a medal in London is back at her third Olympics - but this time in a bobsled.
After a year and a half of training, Jones has won acceptance from teammates who have welcomed her as one of their own.
At a news conference Monday in Sochi, the hurdler told the story about how she became a bobsledder, with words that became hard to decipher as her eyes welled with tears.
Jones wrapped up the tale by shouting: "They had my back."
She said her bobsledding teammates in Lake Placid, New York, "accepted me, they embraced me, they lifted me up and I think it was what I needed."
