"But I had the best race of my year, so I just try to take a look at that. It doesn't take away from the pain that I was so close to, once again, having a medal and not getting it."
Not longer after her 2012 Olympic run, Jones was training for the Games again, this time as part of the U.S. bobsled team preparing to compete at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
Jones made headlines of a different kind in July 2013, after reportedly knocking out the stepdaughter of U.S. bobsled legend Tony Carlino, whose name was not released, at a watering hole in Lake Placid, New York. According to reports, no charges were filed against Jones following the incident, and the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation has stated finding no reason to sanction the athlete for her alleged involvement.
In October 2013, Jones made it on the U.S. women's bobsled team for the World Cup. She finished third at the U.S. selection race, alongside bobsled driver Jazmine Fenlator. Fenlator was also given a spot on the World Cup team. As part of the third American sled, USA-3, Jones and Fenlator finished in 11th place. Following her performance, Jones stated that she was unsure if she would participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics. She went on to say that her bobsled experience was amazing.
Jones is reportedly the most-followed U.S. track athlete on Twitter. She has shared much of her professional and personal life in her tweets, including her search for a romantic relationship.
