(NEWSER) – Lolo Jones and fellow former track star Lauryn Williams are set to make history at the Sochi Olympics as the ninth and tenth Americans to compete in both Summer and Winter Olympics. The two women, who have five Summer Olympics between them, were named as members of the US Olympic Bobsled team after a tense wait last night, reports NBC. "The biggest honor I'll ever have in my life is representing Team USA," says Jones, whose quest to make the team involved plenty of double bacon cheeseburgers. "I'm overwhelmed with emotions."
