Olympic Gold

As the world tunes into the London Olympics, Americans will be checking out the world’s fastest female hurdler, United States sweetheart, Lolo Jones.  Her story comes complete with heart-breaking losses in 2004 and 2008. She hopes to go for gold in 2012. She’s no stranger to hurdles on the track and the hurdles she’s faced growing up in a dysfunctional home.

Her athleticism became a way to run past her challenges. She offered the sacrifice of training throughout high school, college and the years beyond. Her focus was always the Olympics. But that wasn’t her only sacrifice.

Lolo, who’ll soon turn 30, has remained a virgin.  She states, “It’s just a gift I want to give my husband. But please understand this journey has been hard. There are virgins out there and I want to let them know that’s it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than graduating from college has been staying a virgin before marriage. I’ve been tempted. I’ve had plenty of opportunities.”

Virginity is a choice—and it’s one that requires strength, endurance and willingness to go against the culture. Olympic-trained Lolo Jones knows that life is much more than gold medals. She grew up with a broken home and longs to share a bond that has the strength to last. Lolo is making the harder choices now in order to remain faithful to her future husband. That’s a gold medal choice.
