Jones is one of six women selected as push athletes for the team, a group that also includes Olympic sprinting gold medalist Tianna Madison. The team was revealed in Lake Placid, N.Y., on Thursday morning.

Jones and Madison were among a small number of track athletes invited to Lake Placid for bobsled’s push championships earlier this month. Now they’re in the mix for a shot at the 2014 Sochi Games.

The U.S. bobsled team opens World Cup competition in Lake Placid on Nov. 8.
