As she gets ready to compete as an Olympic bobsledder for the first time, Lolo Jones talked to TODAY about her transition from a summer Olympian to a winter Olympian and what it's like to be part of a team. 

Jones competed in two Olympics as a hurdler before deciding to give bobsled a shot following a disappointing fourth-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2012 Olympics in London. She talked to TODAY about how she first got into the sport, and her teammate Elana Meyers addresses the controversy of Jones' selection to Team USA. 

Jones also talked about what it's like to be part of a team compared to the more solitary pursuit of track and field. 

"In bobsled, it's a unit,'' she said. "It's all about putting myself last and pushing the drivers up. My job is actually to humble myself and lift them up."
