Olympic Athlete Lolo Jones: I Can't Keep A Boyfriend Because I'm A Virgin

Olympic athlete Lori 'Lolo' Jones says she hasn't been able to find a steady boyfriend because she's a virgin.

"This journey has been hard," the 29-year-old tells HBO's 'Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel' of staying a virgin. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

"Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than studying for college has been staying a virgin before marriage."

"It's something, a gift I want to give my husband."

"The number one reason why I'm single is because guys deuce out when I won't put out."

"I've been tempted," she admits. "I've had guys tell me: 'Hey, you know, if you have sex, it'll help you run faster.'"

"I do want this gold medal," says the track and field star. "But not that bad. Not yet. If you marry me, then yeah."
