In August 2011, Lolo Jones underwent spinal surgery at DISC for a tethered spinal cord after experiencing symptoms like difficulty feeling her feet and excruciating back pain. It all began after she tripped on a hurdle during the 100 m event in the Beijing Olympics. Dr. Bray diagnosed Jones with the syndrome and performed the surgery. Six months later, Jones won first place at the US Open of Track & Field.
Jones also participated in the 2012 London Olympics, placing fourth in the 100 m Hurdles Final. Jones has also competed in bobsledding competitions in 2013.
