Track star-turned-bobsledder Lolo Jones found herself trading punches with the stepdaughter of bobsled legend Tony Carlino, who runs the Lake Placid, N.Y. track where Jones and her teammates are training for the Sochi Olympics.

Jones and teammate Aja Evans were at Roomers Night Club near the track run by Carlino when his stepdaughter approached them, "visibly intoxicated" around 1 a.m. Friday night a witness said.

Jones pushed the stepdaughter to the ground, then left the bar. The stepdaughter reportedly followed her outside, where they were separated by bouncers.

Bobsled officials say it's unlikely Jones will be sanctioned for the fight.

The USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation said it looked into the incident, speaking to to witnesses and athletes who were at the bar Friday night.

Jones did not "knock out" the stepdaughter, as some rumors originally suggested, and no charges were filed with police.
