She ran hurdles during the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. She went on to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics as a bobsledder.
Jones hasn’t been linked to many men since she shared that she’s a virgin, but she did reveal in January 2018 that she had kissed NBA star Blake Griffin.

Hard to handle: The Olympic hurdler and bobsledder has previously revealed her decision to be honest about her virginity ‘killed’ her dating options
In a candid Instagram post from September, Jones opened up about how she has only been in a few serious relationships in her life because of her decision to stay a virgin.
‘The longest relationship I’ve ever had was in college I dated a guy for over two years,’ she wrote. ‘That has been my only serious relationship. So keep me in your prayers bc I def need this cruel rom com that has been my dating life to end.’

‘It almost broke my relationship with God bc I felt He really had forsaken me,’ she explained. ‘And yes I know God doesn’t promise us anything and we should be content but I’m not on a soapbox preaching. I admit I went Thru a very lonely season.
‘Guys said they respected me and my decision to not have sex before marriage but they would never want to date me. Or wouldn’t have time,’ she recalled.
‘Two outta three of the last dates I went on said I was too old. (They were both Christians) so needless to say I’ve had my heart broke.
‘And I really hope I’m moving into a new season bc if I have to see another girl post her wedding photos on here I’m going to break my dayumm phone with my bare hands.’
