TRACK AND FIELD
Lolo Jones returned from an injury to run the fastest women’s 50-meter hurdles time in the world since 2008 with a finish of 6.78 seconds Saturday at the U.S. Open.
The event at Madison Square Garden was the start of the Visa Championships Series.
Jones, the two-time defending World Indoor champion, underwent back surgery following the 2011 USA Outdoor Championships. This was her first race since the surgery.
“This year I have just been working on my core strength and speed,” Jones said. “I didn’t even know what the world record was.
“I knew that I had to go out there and just run.”
