Jones returns to podium at Drake Relays

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lolo Jones and teammates Bri Rollins, Queen Harrison and Vashti Thomas took the women's shuttle hurdle relay Friday night in the Drake Relays.

It was the first meet victory for Jones — who went to high school mere miles from Drake Stadium — since she took the 100 hurdles in 2008.

Jones hardly ran a clean race in her return to the track just two months after her stint as a bobsledder for the U.S. in the Sochi Olympics. But it was clean enough to help beat a four-team field that saw one team fail to start and another fail to finish.

On the men's side, LaShawn Merritt beat one of the best fields in the 105-year history of the Drake Relays by winning the 400 in 44.44.
