"Gal" Friday! Lolo Jones

American track and field athlete Lolo Jones specializes in the 60 and 100 meter hurdles. She won three NCAA titles and garnered 11 All-American honors while attending LSU. She also won indoor national titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009 in the 60 meter hurdles, and a pair of gold medals at the World Indoor Championship in 2008 and 2010. Although she was favored to win the 100 meter hurdles at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, she tripped on the penultimate hurdle ultimately finishing in seventh place. Trivia: Jones is currently the American record holder in the 60m hurdles. Lolo made headlines in recent days with her candid admission that she remains a virgin at the age of twenty-nine, and that staying a virgin before marriage has been the hardest thing she’s ever done in her life; harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college. I admire her sticking to her guns, and hopefully having done so, she will end up with someone who deserves her sacrifice (lucky bastard).
