Iowa native Lolo Jones secured her spot in the 100-meter hurdles at the London Olympics Saturday, but not before a few close calls.
Lolo had a sluggish start Friday, finishing 15th out of a possible 21 qualifiers for Saturday’s semifinals with a time of 13:01.
In the first race on Saturday afternoon, Lolo finished with the 5th fastest time of 8 finalists.
She had to finish in the top three Saturday night to return to the Olympics, and she did. Lolo finished behind defending Olympic champion Dawn Harper and 2011 U.S. champion Kellie Wells.
