Less than a month after she reportedly tried the sport for the first time, Lolo Jones, an Olympic hurdler in 2008 and 2012, has made the U.S. bobsled team, according to a report Thursday morning from USA TODAY Sports.

Jones, 30, was named to the team as a push athlete, the member of the team tasked with pushing the bobsled at the beginning of the race. She will compete with the team in the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

She had competed with 16 other potential "pushers" during the summer push championship, in which she finished seventh, and team races, which had wrapped up Oct. 24. She had finished second in a team race Oct. 20.

Jones was reportedly recruited by Todd Hays, the women's bobsled coach and a 2002 Olympic silver medalist.
