All eyes will be on Lolo Jones as she makes her debut at the women's bobsleigh competition of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which kicks off on Tuesday at the Sanki Sliding Center.

The three USA Teams competing in the race will look to dethrone the Canadian pair of Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse, the gold-medal winners in the same event four years ago in Vancouver.

Jones will have a fair share of the spotlight on her as she makes her debut in the event. The hurdler-turned-brakeman will look to win an Olympic medal for the third time in her career when she teams up with driver Jazmine Fenlator.

Jones' inclusion on the team drew criticism several months before the Sochi Olympics, but the former summer Olympian vowed to go all out to silence her critics.

"My job is the same as it's always been," Jones told the Boston Herald. "I want to go to the Olympics and I want to win a medal. That goal has never changed. If I have to take a whole bunch of crazy bad Twitter replies or hate mail or people saying I get more publicity, I don't care."

The USA-3 team of Fenlator and Jones will have to step up though if they want to earn a place at the podium after finishing just 10th and eighth during the final two bobsled training runs on Sunday.

USA teams won both heats on Sunday's training runs. USA-1 team of Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams took the first heat, while the USA-2 team of Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans finished fourth. In the final run, Greubel and Evans finished first, while Meyers and Williams ended up fifth.

Meyers and Williams damaged their sleds before Sunday's training run, but the pair did not show signs of slowing down heading into the first two heats of competition.

"Really needed to get back out here," Meyers said in an ESPN interview. "Me and Lauryn have limited sliding time together so we definitely wanted to work on our timing. Our timing's there, and I'm very confident in our push and I was able to fix some things in the drive."

The women's Bobsleigh competition will kick off at 10:15 a.m. EST, Tuesday. The full TV schedule is available here, while live stream will also be available at NBC Olympics Live Extra. The full list of participants and results are available at the official website of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
