    Lolo in 2012

    As fast as Lolo has become, I believe she has a good chance at doing this one more time and possible win it in 2012, though there will be some new younger blood in future Olympics. I thought that NBC said one of the other 100 hurdle finalists was 33, and Lolo will be 30 at the next Olympics.

    It'll be tough, but she'll surely give it a go.

    I watched an interview this morning that she did with NBC and she said she will be trying for the 2012 Olympics.

    Hopefully she redeems herself in London - what a way to end an Olympic experience

    Re: Lolo in 2012

    Channel 13 quoted somebody (might have been Lolo's manager?) as saying that hurdlers hit their peak in their 30s. I don't know whether that's true, but if it is, Lolo could have a decent shot at at least one more Olympic games if not two. And as Dara Torres has proved (proven?), athletes can continue making it to the Olympics into their 40s. (It's highly improbable, but possible.)

    Really? Maybe I should dust off my old track spikes then...

    I really can't imagine working so hard and coming so close and then having to wait 4 year and do it all over again.

    One of the other top US runners in the 100 hurdles is 30, two of the Jamaican runners are 33 years old. I would say it is very possible for her to compete in 4 years if she chooses to.
