You can't keep a good woman down. 

The last memory most have of Lolo Jones at the London Olympics is her finishing just shy of the podium in the women's 100-meter hurdles. 

After years of tireless work, she was on the outside looking in on her dream. The best way to get over a defeat is to celebrate like a true champion. 

That's precisely what Jones did with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and sports. 

The Daily Mail caught up with the star Olympian who was at London's Roundhouse in Camden with fellow athlete Hope Solo. 

As the report points out, the party took an unfortunate turn for Jones and her blouse. After rap star Nas tweeted out this picture, a fan noticed the stains on her top. 

Always the good sport, Jones tweeted this retort.

"Wasn't drooling someone spilled a drink on me...Ok i was drooling RT @williamgone: RT @nas: S/O to lolo Jones #teamusa po.st/2kdaYO/"

I don't think she was busy pounding too many brews, because the report states she had a Red Bull in hand. 

Not that she wouldn't have had some expensive libations around. This picture over at SportsGrid shows Kobe Bryant, Swizz Beats, Nas and Carmelo Anthony, who seems to have some champagne in hand for the festivities. 

Someone is doing this life thing correctly. 

Rap Up has this photo of Ludacris getting just a taste of what it's like to be an Olympic champion. The best part is the play-by-play he offered later in the night.

Team USA came back to the hotel celebrating their Gold Medals singing "we are young" by Fun. If only y'all could hear them! Hilarious

Back to Lolo Jones, we have to think she had some sort of hangover, or is just delighted to not have to wake up in the early hours to go training, at least for a bit, because she offered this tweet.

"I'm on an all cheeseburger diet."

After some hard partying, there is nothing like some great food that is unhealthy for you. 

It's hard work being an Olympian, but there is immense fun on the other side of it all. Eat your cheeseburgers, because you earned it.
