Lolo Jones takes crazy aerobatic flight (video)

Lolo Jones recently took a break from track and field (and bobsled) training to reach speeds she’s never seen while sprinting over hurdles and down icy chutes.

Jones, one of 10 Americans to compete in the Summer and Winter Olympics, strapped in for an unconventional flight with two-time Red Bull Air Race World champion Kirby Chambliss.

Jones, 33, finished 10th overall in the 100m hurdles semifinals at the U.S. Track and Field Championships in June, failed to finish in the final and goes into the Rio Olympic year as an underdog to make her third Summer Olympic team.

Many ruled out Jones going into the last Summer Olympic year, and she finished third at the 2012 trials to make that team. She is seeking her first Olympic medal.
