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.

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.
