Lolo Jones Net Worth, Boyfriend, Parents, Ethnicity
A star hurdler and bobsledder, Lolo Jones specializes in the 100-meter and 60-meter hurdles. She skyrocketed to the international track and field scene following her gold medals wins in 2008 and 2010 at the World Indoor Championship.
Dubbed the favorite at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the 100-meter hurdles category, Lolo ended the race at the disappointing seventh place. On the way to the finish line, she had tripped and fell.
Putting the incident behind her, the two-time Olympian bagged a gold medal at the World Athletics Final in 2008.
In 2014, Lolo made history as she became one of few female athletes who has participated in both Winter and Summer Olympic Games. A year earlier, she won a gold medal at the FIBT World Championships as a member of the US mixed team.

A devout Chrisitan, the three-time USA indoor champion loathes the idea of pre-marital sex. Admittedly, she is saving herself for her future husband. Not even the temptation of winning medals have lured her into a strictly sexual relationship.
By her admission, Lolo's stance on pre-marital sexual acts has proved detrimental to her quest of a suitable partner. During her 2018 Madame Noire interview, she opened up about being a virgin at the age of 30 and how her religious beliefs scared away possible boyfriends.
Other than her brief romance with NBA star Blake Griffin in 2018, not many information is available on her past romantic partners. That said, now and again, she references her ex-boyfriends via tweets.
