Olympic Hurdler Lolo Jones Says Keeping Virginity Is The Hardest Thing She Has Ever Had To Do

The 2012 Summer Olympic Game are almost here. I always forget about the Olympic games until about two weeks before they actually start, but this year I can't get them out of my mind. Whether it's Michael Phelps trying to win more gold, or Alex Morgan playing soccer, I can't wait for the 2012 Olympics.

The 2008 Beijing Games were the best I ever witnessed. When I was watching Michael Phelps take over the world, the Men's Basketball team, and the Women's Gymnastics team, I was cheering my country on. However, the one team that struck my heart the most was the Women's Gymnastics team.

Not only did I want them to beat the China because they were using 11-year old girls, but a lot of them were so adorable. And luckily for us, at least two of the girls will be returning to London, including the girl I crushed on like a schoolboy throughout the whole games.

The Olympics are a strange animal. You care so much about these athletes for about a month - and once it's done - you forget about a majority of the athletes you cheered for. I remember the Men's Relay in swimming, but I don't remember the anchor that won the race for the Americans. I just remember the rage celebration Michael Phelps and the rest of them had. But I do remember Nastia Liukin and Alicia Sacramone. Why do I remember them? Because I am a disgusting, stereotypical, pig. The girls were hot!

Let's face it, many men share the same thought process. We aren't a difficult species to figure out. As Chris Rock once said, all we want is food, sex, and silence. And when it comes to the Olympic Games, we just want some eye candy to go with our games. It's not all I'm looking for during the Olympics - obviously - but it doesn't hurt!

Here are 10 of the hottest athletes to look out for during the 2012 London Games. Needless to say, I will be tuning into Gymnastics and Track and Field events throughout the games.

Lolo Jones has a good shot to bring home a medal in the hurdles for the USA at the London Olympics.  You would think training for that would be the hardest thing that she has ever done.  If you think that, you would be wrong.  By her own account, Lolo Jones says that keeping her virginity has been the hardest thing that she has ever done.

It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than graduating college.”

Maybe Lolo Jones can join forces with Tim Tebow to form a virginity athlete support group.  I imagine that those two can not be the only ones who still got the ol V card in the wallet.  Good for Lolo, though.  She is focused on one goal right now and that is getting a gold medal.  If she wants to keep her virginity until she feels like it, there is no shame in that.

Lolo Jones has always been focused on her track career, she has never really had the time for a relationship.  Once again, there is nothing wrong with that.  This keeps reminding me of how often Tebow was mocked for saying he was still a virgin.  In the end, does it really matter?  People live their own lives.  If they want to abstain, whatever.  It is not going to end the world.

If you want to hear more from Lolo Jones on this topic, she will be on Real Sports discussing the whole thing.  I imagine that will be one interesting segment.
