U.S. Olympic hurdler Lori “Lolo” Jones made headlines recently when she revealed on HBO Sports that she’s a virgin. In the interview the Olympic favorite talked about her struggle to find someone to commit to and the challenge in staying a virgin:
“It’s just a gift I want to give to my husband. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than graduating college. … I’ve had guys tell me, if you have sex it will help you run faster.”
It will help you run faster? Really dude? C’mon! That’s hilarious! Lolo Jones is dedicated to her dream of Olympic gold. She has sacrificed and worked hard to fund her college career and finance her dream working part-time jobs and even living with another family when her family moved to an area where the high school didn’t have a track team. It is in this level of dedication and discipline we see in Lolo that makes us appreciate her. In today’s world of sex-tape-chicks-turned-celebrities it is nice to see a woman who stays true to her principles and values. Lolo’s story of personal sacrifice for her dream reminds us to stay the course and never give up.
It also reminds us that we are worth waiting for.
