Lolo Jones: Guess What's Harder Than Training for Olympics?

BR5Daily ShowDecember 14, 2016

Welcome to BR5, your daily sports and pop culture news.

Making it to the Olympics can be a difficult task for many, but for track and field star Lolo Jones, that's only half her battle. On an episode of HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," Jones revealed that, at age 29, she still is holding on to something sacred...her virginity. 

Don't know who Lolo Jones is? Well, think back to 2009 when she posed nude for the ESPN: The Magazine's Body Issue. She also explains how she later regretted the decision of posing nude. 

The hot Olympian stated that staying true to herself has been the hardest thing that she has accomplished aside from training for the Olympics, and finding a man that's OK with her life choice has been even more difficult.

She said men have tried convincing her by saying that having sex would make her run faster...Really, boys? Try again.

Jones isn't the first Olympian to put her career before having sex. Jamaican runner Usain Bolt recently decided to break up with his girlfriend in favor of training for the next Olympic Games, per the Huffington Post.
