Lolo Jones = the Anna Kournikova of Track and Field
There was the whole thing over her being a virgin and how hard it is to remain one (why she thought that anyone would care, I have no idea). Now it’s her placing FOURTH in the 100 meter hurdle final this afternoon.
For those keeping score, that keeps Jones at the same number of Olympic medals I have: ZERO. For an athlete that garners so much hype, one would think that Jones would have an Olympic medal or two by now.
Now one thing that she has going for her is that she does have SOME championships under her belt: indoor national titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009 in the 60 m hurdles, with gold medals at the World Indoor Championship in 2008 and 2010. However, those championships without Olympic medals is like Tiger Woods winning minor golf tournaments but no majors.
So Lolo, here is some unsolicited advice for ya…
First, get the hell off of Twitter. While it does make for some good entertainment, I do not need to know about your lack of sex life and your devotion to the Lord. Keep doing you, I just don’t want to know about it.
Second, get laid. You’d be surprised at how loose you’d be once you “close the deal” with some dude – or woman if you swing that way.
Last but not least, devote all of your focus on getting better. You should take a chapter out of teammates Dawn Harper (who won the silver) and Kellie Wells (she won bronze). Keep your head down and focus!
There you have it Lolo. Three easy steps on how to live up to those lofty expectations placed upon you since starring at and graduating from LSU.
Otherwise Anna Kournikova will soon have company as a beautiful athlete who didn’t win anything consequential.
