Jones recently admitted on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel that staying a virgin has been harder than training for the Olympics, especially as she’s gotten older. She’s a devout Christian, and wants to wait until marriage.
Unlike another famous virgin athlete, Tim Tebow, who has the personality of a lukewarm cooler of Gatorade, Lolo is funny, charming, humble, and wry. Instead of a brash obnoxious professional athlete, she’s like your funniest single BFF whose career comes before dating, and is able to joke about it.
I’m totally charmed. Can an Astronaut Mike Dexter please step forward for this gorgeous woman?
