ANCHOR LEAD: She may be famous for clearing the 100 meter hurdles in record time. But, Brian Osuch finds out one Olympic hopeful has also surmounted some personal obstacles on her quest to becoming the greatest female hurdler of all time. (:60)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. While growing up in Iowa, World Champion Hurdler, Lolo Jones always knew the importance of hard work and determination to overcome the hurdles in her life. Now, she's teaming up with P&G as she prepares for this summers' Olympic Games in London.
CUT: (Jones) My childhood was a bit rocky, my mom was a single mom. She was raising five kids on her own. I remember she was always trying to stretch the budget and it was a lot of shopping at Family Dollar… buying products like Tide, Crest and just trying to make sure that she can get the most out of every paycheck she possibly could.
SCRIPT: Jones says that's why she's happy to help young people make their dreams come true.
CUT: (Jones) I'm teaming up with one of the Olympic sponsor, Proctor and Gamble, and they're actually donating twenty-five-thousand dollars to P&G Team U Sports to help young athletes achieve their dreams on behalf of Family Dollar.
