In 2012, the Olympic track star revealed on Twitter that she had never had sex.

“It’s just something, a gift I want to give my husband,” Jones said in an interview on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. “But please understand that this journey has been hard. There are virgins out there and I’m going to let them know, 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.”
