An over-the-top Olympic-style homecoming in her hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, was exactly what Lolo Jones needed.
She's been dissected in the media and dissed by her own teammates. If that wasn't bad enough, Jones failed to even medal in the 100-meter hurdles at the recent London Olympics after spending four years working to overcome her heartbreaking stumble in Beijing.
An emotional Jones joined a cast of Iowa-based Olympians that included gymnast Gabby Douglas and wrestler Jake Varner, both gold medalists, in a raucous celebration on the campus of Drake University.
Jones says the support of her fans is a light in dark times.
