ASICS America is pleased to announce today it re-signed two-time 60-meter hurdles indoor World Champion Lolo Jones. She is the first woman ever to claim back-to-back World Indoor titles in the 60-meter hurdles while setting an American record in the process. Jones explosive speed and power on the track has earned her a spot as a brakeman on the U.S. national bobsled team, recently winning a gold medal in the mixed team event at the 2013 World Championships. At the 2012 London Olympics, Jones placed fourth in the 100-meter hurdles.Learn more about Lolo
