Olympian Lolo Jones is one of the best hurdlers in the world. She's athletic, she's attractive, she's fit ... and as she recently stated on Twitter, she's a virgin. The 29-year-old Jones, who has won gold medals at the World Indoor Championships twice, but is still searching for her first Olympic gold medal, openly discussed her virginity on HBO's "Real Sports," in an episode that airs on Tuesday night.
"It's just something, a gift I want to give to my husband," she told Mary Carillo. "But please understand: This journey has been hard. It's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college.
"I've been tempted. I've had guys tell me 'If you have sex it will help you run faster.' I was like 'I do want this gold medal, but not yet. I do want to be married.'" Jones says she's turned to Twitter to fulfill her dating life, which is always a risky proposition.
"I'm waiting for the day where somebody totally tricks me with their Twitter picture ... they're using like an Abercrombie model, I show up on the date and it's like somebody from 'The Biggest Loser.'"
Yes, that means if you follow Lolo on Twitter (@lolojones), you might actually have a chance to date her.
Let's just hope her Twitter dates have turned out better than Chad Ochocinco's.
Well, if it’s not a religios conviction, why exactly are you holding out?
I’m Jewish so I attend synagogue.
It goes deeper than just religious convictions.
Well, get off your butt and get out there.
There are tons of guys (young, older, divorced, single) that are looking for a wonderful lady.
The sex thing can be such a hang up for some people. I guess it just wasn’t for me.
And really, when the person is right, and the timing is right, you will WANT to do those things—to make them happy. That is what love is all about.
Its not about rooting around like a couple of dogs just “because” you have nothing better to do.
Hang in there. Put yourself out there. Mid thirties is nothing....
School is really more important. I only have one chance to become a meteorologist.
I need to prioritize.
Whatever. You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the winds blowin’.
