Jones, who did not win a medal in Tuesday's 100-meter hurdles final, fought back tears as she addressed the critical article.

"The fact that they just tore me apart, it was heartbreaking," she said. "They didn't even do their research -- calling me the Anna Kournikova of track. I have the American record. I am the American-record holder indoors, I have two world indoor titles.

"Just because I don't boast about these things, I don't think I should be ripped apart by media. I laid it out there, I fought hard for my country. I think it's a shame that I have to deal with so much backlash when I'm already so brokenhearted as it is."


Whoever the writer is from the NYT is already forgotten ,Lolo. It's not the critic who counts...
