(Sochi, Russia) -- The abuse just keeps coming for U.S. bobsledder Lolo Jones. Former Olympic bobsledder Chuck Berkeley took to Twitter to rip Jones and the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation's decision to include her in the Sochi Games. Berkley claims that Jones was only chosen because of the marketing opportunities. Jones participated in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Games as a hurdler and gained fame despite failing to medal. Jones and teammate Jazmine Fenlator got off to a rough start in the women's heats yesterday, placing 11th out of 19 sleds through the first two of four runs. The pair will complete competition today.
