KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- American bobsledder Lolo Jones has gotten ill at the Sochi Olympics.

Jones tweeted Monday that she was in a "quarantine room" in the village. U.S. bobsled spokeswoman Amanda Bird confirmed Jones exhibited cold and flu symptoms, and that the move was precautionary.

Jones was back with teammates later Monday after joking on Twitter about single rooms and stray dogs.

Jones and bobsled teammate Lauryn Williams are to become the ninth and 10th Americans to compete in both the summer and winter Games. Jones is a two-time hurdler in the Summer Olympics, and will race with Jazmine Fenlator in USA-3 in Sochi.
