American-hurdler-turned-bobsledder Lolo Jones was battling cold and flu-like symptoms, and she was briefly quarantined from her teammates on Monday.
According to the Associated Press, Bobsled spokeswoman Amanda Bird confirmed that it was just a precautionary move, but that didn't stop Jones from posting on Twitter while she was isolated from the team.

She was reportedly back with her fellow sledders later on Monday. Jones will be paired with pilot Jazmine Fenlator once women's bobsled competition begins on Feb. 18.
Jones and teammate Lauryn Williams (track and field) are set to become the ninth and tenth American athletes to compete in both the summer and winter games.
