Skip to comments.Lolo Jones: Keeping My Virginity Harder Than Training for Olympics

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.
“I’ve had guys tell me ‘If you have sex it will help you run faster.”
If she runs faster she won’t have sex.
So she's an attention whore
Meanwhile, Freeper Google searches for “LoLo Jones” just went through the roof... X-D
Or a role model. Depending on your point of view.
Attention whore? Ya think?
She has an amazing background. As a kid lived in a shelter for awhile.p
I’d rather have role models speak out more and people, who are really warnings, to speak out less.
thanks nickcarraway, image search:
How absolutely beautiful. That photograph is art. What a splendid gift she’s going to be giving her husband. I hope the man she chooses will merit this honor.
She and Tebow should get together. Can you just imagine what kind of kids those two would have? Wow.
What a stupid story. Why is EVERYTHING about sex, or not having sex, or same sex, or contraception due to sex, or abortions due to sex.
The woman is one of the best athletes in the world...and this is the best we can do? Shame on this reporter.
Lolo has a fantastic story that most should hear. Born in to extreme poverty. Broke some laws in order to survive. Became a star athlete and now an Olympian. A great role model for many disadvantaged kids. She is a class act.
For any Freepers watching the olympics: this gal is worth getting excited about. Great story,great person,and dearly loves her country where all things are possible.
Except for the body , face and hair she looks exactly like my wife !
