So track star Lolo Jones is disappointed in the amount of pay a U.S. Olympic bobsledder makes. Wait, we PAY bobsledders! She posted a Vine video of her $741.84 check for what she said is seven months of training for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation (Yes, we have one of those.
Surprisingly, the rest of the Olympians who DON’T have endorsement deals based on their good looks or virginity, are none to pleased with her complaint.
While Ms. Jones claims she is only trying to bring awareness to the issue that Olympians in pseudo-sports played once every four years (and then ignored for another four years) are not paid like NBA stars, I doubt most people would be surprised at this revelation. As a matter of fact, I was under the mistaken belief that Olympians competed for the love of their sport and Country. Silly me.
Maybe Ms. Jones should have dedicated her time to an endeavor that would pay her what she obviously thinks she’s worth … like dating Tiger Woods.
