Lolo Jones' bid to cross over from Olympic hurdler to Olympic bobsledder likely will hinge on her performance in upcoming World Cup events. The two-time U.S. Olympic hurdler will get a chance to show her stuff in the first World Cup event.

The U.S. Bobsledding pairings for the World Cup in Calgary were released on Tuesday, with Jones pushing for Jazmine Fenaltor. The other pairings are driver Jamie Greubel with push athlete Katie Eberling and driver Elana Meyers with Aja Evans.

The U.S. women's bobsledding team roster currently includes six women pushers vying for three likely spots at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The pairings could change at next week’s World Cup stop in Park City, Utah, as athletes compete to be named to the U.S. Olympic team in mid-to-late January. Jones earned three medals in her first season as a member of the U.S. national bobsledding. She originally considered bobsledding to be a cross-training exercise but has since embraced the sport and her chances to become a Winter Olympian.
