In today’s nonfishing news, 29-year-old Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones says virginity is “hard.” So far her plight is much more intriguing than Tim Tebow’s….
Via Gawker: “You wouldn’t wish Lolo Jones’ problems on your worst enemy. She was an Olympic hurdler in 2008. She’s one of the biggest track and field stars in America. Next month, at age 29, she’ll be running to qualify for the Olympics again. Imagine the pressure (and the sweating!). On top of that, she has the sculpted body of a world class athlete, the tan of a god, and the beauty of a Hollywood star. Imagine the pressure. And now, in a new segment on HBO’s “Real Sports,” she’s bravely opened up about her ongoing struggles to remain a virgin.”
