Bobsledder Lolo Jones won’t be competing until next week, but, battling flu-like symptoms, the 31-year-old was sent to her hotel room so her teammates wouldn’t get sick.

She was released on Monday and will participate in official training runs beginning Friday. U.S. bobsled spokesperson Amanda Bird confirmed to the Associated Press that the move was precautionary.

Jones will be partnered with pilot Jazmine Fenlator. The pair didn’t medal in three World Cup races together this season.

Jones and bobsled teammate Lauryn Williams will be the ninth and 10th American athletes to compete in both the summer and winter games.
