Feng Li/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Lolo Jones and Lauryn Williams were selected for the U.S. Olympic bobsled team on Sunday.

The two will become the ninth and 10th Americans to compete in both the summer and winter versions of the Games when they compete at the Sochi Olympics next month.

“I was definitely very nervous entering the room,” Jones said. “I’m usually used to looking up at a screen after I cross the finish line to see the results. You’re just like anxious, armpits are sweating, don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Jones tried bobsledding in the fall of 2012 and won a World Cup medal in her first race.

“I joined bobsled just to be a helper and to add positive energy to the team,” Williams said. “If my name wasn’t called, I wasn’t going to be upset. I’ve enjoyed this journey. I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone. I’ve enjoyed the challenge.”
