After two days of heats, Wayne native Jazmine Fenlator and her partner Lolo Jones placed 11th in the women’s two-men bobsled race at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
According to NBColympics.com, the USA-3 team ended up finishing in the same position they left off in after the first day of heats Tuesday.
Team USA did take home some bobsledding medals, though. USA-1 team Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams took home the silver medal, NBC reported, losing gold by 0.10 seconds to Canadians Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse.
The USA-2 team - Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans – scored the bronze medal.
After the race, Fenlator tweeted congratulations to her US teammates, saying she was, “Freakin pumped 4 my teammates & the flags raised. Congrats on ur medal performance.”
Fenlator also tweeted some kind words about her bobsled partner. Jones, a track & field summer Olympian, has garnered a lot of attention for her jump to a Winter Olympic sport this year.
According to reports, Jones has been criticized during the games, with some saying favoritism garnered her a spot on the team. Fenlator squashed that perception with her tweet.
“Couldnt have been more honored & proud 2 race w @lolojones in #Sochi2014 earning her spot outright; an incredible athlete, team & friend!” Fenlator tweeted.
Jones told NBColympics.com she was satisfied with her run, and proud of Fenlator and all of her US teammates.
