American sprint hurdler Lolo Jones said it was a big mistake the day she announced she was a virgin.

Jones, one of the most popular sprint hurdlers, not a win an Olympic Games or World Championships medal, in a 2012 interview with Bryant Gumbel said: “I want to wait until I’m married to have sex.”

However, on Cold As Balls on LOL Network with host Kevin Hart, Jones expressed regret.

“That was a mistake,” Jones said.

“That killed all my dates after that,” Jones explained. She added that after the interview in 2012, she “didn’t even have a chance.”

“Before, at least I had a chance. Before, I’d like, tiptoe.’ Okay, when’s a good time to tell him? Do I wait until he sees my personality a little bit? Or do I just drop the bomb?'”

Jones said her mom and dad were together for 20 years without marriage. “They are not together anymore,” she said back in 2012.

“It’s just something, a gift I want to give to my husband,” she told Gumbel.

“This journey has been hard. There are virgins out there, I’m gonna let them know, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college,” she said.

Despite Jones’ belief that, “having sex actually helps you as an athlete (female), and that she is “running at a disadvantage” also has another opinion.
She said being a virgin has given her a “higher level of intensity.”

  1. Being a virgin is not a sin. Having sex out of wedlock is not wrong. Dare to be and stay different. Don’t be driven or pressured by other folks opinions and lust. Trust me waiting on God to send you a husband pays off. And note having sex to be a better athlete is not going to improve your abilities to do better but relying totally on God will. So dont regret what you said in 2012 about being a virgin. When its time God will send you a husband not a guy who’s trying to get a test drive before he decides if your worthy or not. If a guy is not willing to wait til marriage trust me thats a guy you dont need in your life.

  3. You know it’s rather funny how we women tear down each other instead of encouraging each other and that’s so sad. I’ve read all the comments and I’m truly bless to see so many godly men still around. Lolo your body is a temple for God to abide and if you have come this far without accepting Christ as your personal savior now is the time.

  4. Lol is a great talent who was two missteps from Olympic gold. I am annoyed that her sex life precedes her athletics accomplishments.
    She is right, it was, AND IS, a mistake to keep the discussion going. I really dont care, who,what or where she is doing whatever. Astonishing that this part of her life is back to dominate the conversation but. I should say SHE brought it up again…should have said no comment, next question. First time, yeah mistake to talk about it, second time she crashed into hurdle 9 again..she should be a bit more media savvy by now.
    How come it came up in the first place years ago?
    What other athlete on the track (or pool,pitch) do we know about their virtues? Good luck on the circuit this season. Lolo is a 37 year old sprinter facing a very deep and faster hurdle field than previously encountered. Her maiden status ain’t going to help much in her quest to make Diamond Leage, and USA trials.

  5. I didn’t know there were any Virgin Women left in the world? I keep trying to find my virginity. I can’t remember where I left it. God Bless you Lo Lo. As a virgin. You are definitely a minority.

  6. I vongratulate you Lolo Jones you are definitely on the right track. Heb 13:4 say Marriage is honourable and the bed undefiled……..
    God will honour your faith. You just keep yourself and your integrity. I love you.

  7. Big ups to Lolo Jones guys would be idiots expecting sex in a relationship if not married. You get to know the person who they truly are, society has labelled being a virgin in the same catergory as being a loser the only losers are the one’s missing out on the faithful person ready to commit a lifetime to them. Well done!!!

  8. You enjoy a unique blend of beauty, athletic talent, grace and class.
    The intelligent choices you have made and the course you follow has to be the right path for you.
    The results will be success on your terms.
    Courage is the biggest part of your makeup.
    Your incredibly appealing personality mosaic will attract only the extraordinary.

  9. If that’s true then she’s looking for love in the wrong places. Many good men out there treasure virginity and would be glad to know they’re the first person to be one with her after marriage.
