Lolo Jones a commentator now?

Postby fasttrack85 » Tue Mar 26, 2013 10:55 am

Anyone caught that she was a commentator for the NCAA champs? If you watch this video you will hear that it is clearly her. I didn't hear anyone mention it(or maybe i missed it) I wonder if this means she is transitioning out of track sooner than later. Do people who still participate in their sport commentate?

Did she claim to have never handled a microphone before?

She'll probably be more knowledgeable....and generally better.....than most of the TV "pro''s" out there now!!

Her NCAA performance did not show her to be either (more knowledgeable or better).

I knew Lolo was going to be a "commentator" for the Indoor NCAA but since I was working the meet I never saw or heard her on TV or radio. Usully see Dwight and Lewis but no Lolo. :(

Lolo herself wasn't too pleased with her performance. Her Tweet from after the broadcast:

Commentating for ESPN. TRAIN WRECK. When I dressed up as an ESPN Analyst for Halloween, I did a better job. Hope you're tuned in!!! #NCAATF

It was commented on this board during the competition and not in a positive way.

She didn't appear all that well prepared for the broadcast....as if she were walking by the booth and they handed her the mic.
