After a finishing a disappointing fourth place in the 100 meter hurdles last night, Lolo went on the Today show and confessed that a New York Times article dubbing her the "Anna Kournikova of track" had hit a sore spot.

In tears, she iterated how the article failed to take into account the fact she's an Olympic level athlete with two World Championship gold medals to go along with an American record in the 60 meter hurdles.
