DES MOINES - Drake Relays director Brian Brown says Des Moines native Lolo Jones has committed to run in her hometown meet later this month.

Jones won the 100-meter hurdles every year from 2005-08 at Drake. She then lost three straight before pulling out in 2012, an Olympic year, because of poor weather conditions.

Jones will compete against rival Kellie Wells and Dawn Harper for a $50,000 purse, the largest ever offered in the U.S.

Jones finished fourth in the 100 hurdles at the London Games, while Harper won the

silver medal and Wells took bronze.
