On Wednesday morning, Drake Relays Director Brian Brown revealed that U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones will be competing at the Drake Relays next week.

A tweet from the voice of the Drake Bulldogs, Larry Cotlar, said “Drake Relays director brian brown tells espn 1700 the champ that lolo jones is coming to relays next week.”

Since lists of competing athletes first came out a few weeks ago, the question regarding whether of Jones, a Des Moines native, would compete in this year’s Drake Relays loomed heavily through the minds of many. 

Jones has not posted a victory in the Relays since 2008. 

The hometown favorite will continue her 2012 Olympic campaign by competing in the 100-meter hurdles, scheduled for Saturday, April 28th at 3:07pm.
