Olympic track and field star Lori "Lolo" Jones recently told HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" that she's looking for a husband, after revealing on Twitter that she's a 29-year-old virgin.

In an interview Tuesday night, Lolo said she is waiting to have sex because it's "a gift I want to give my husband," adding that she has yet to find a boyfriend.
 
Jones says that steering clear of premarital sex has not been an easy task. "This journey has been hard… 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."
 
The American record holder for the 60m hurdle then revealed she's "been tempted." She adds, "I've had many guys tell me… Hey, you know, if you have sex, it'll help you run faster."
 
No matter how much Jones wants the gold, pre-competition nookie just isn't going to happen. "If you marry me, then, yeah."
