Hurdlers Dawn Harper, Kellie Wells Unhappy With Lolo Jones Stealing Spotlight

Lolo Jones has become America’s sweetheart in the past months as her story of Olympic heartbreak, difficult upbringing and virginity.

But with attention that Jones receives comes feelings of anger, resentment and blatant jealous on the part of her hurdles teammates Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells, the silver and bronze medalists, respectively, in the event.

Appearing on NBC with Michelle Beadle, the two had some choice words to say about Lolo. See video below.

Were Dawn and Kellie right to criticize their teammate like that? Perhaps not, but it is understandable that the women who actually got on the medal stand should be celebrated for their achievements.
