United States Olympic bobsledder Lolo Jones is under fire again, this time from a fellow American bobsledder, Chuck Berkeley.

“I get that people want to latch on to a media sensation and run wild,” Berkeley said, via ESPN, referring to Jones. “But it comes down to this: There are athletes who deserve to be there who are not there, on the women’s and the men’s sides. And you have to ask yourself why is that the case. What is wrong with the selection process? Why is it flawed? Why is it corrupt?”
He also criticized Jones for her attitude.
“From my personal experience with Lolo, she’s had a very bad attitude,” Berkeley said.
Berkeley also said that the men’s bobsled teams avoided spending time with their female counterparts because of Jones.
