Lolo Jones tries to land date with Michael Phelps

Jun 14, 2013, 10:34 AM EDT

Hurdler turned bobsledder (and now back to hurdler, we guess) Lolo Jones has apparently decided that the best way to land a date with Olympics legend Michael Phelps is to build a pool and invite him over for a swim. Or maybe she just wants him to bring one of his 22 career medals, after admitting she was “desperate” to win her own. Note: This method might also work on the newly single Ryan Lochte.

    If she trained half as hard as she does stupid stuff to keep cameras on her, she’d have a truckload of medals by now. She’s just sad now…..

      Yes I’m sure you’re an expert on 100m hurdle training. She is currently 4th in the world (by time, 2013) and I can assure you she trains as hard as anyone.

      She, imo, has a wonderful quirky sense of humor and she likes to have a little fun. More athletes should be like Lolo.

        She’s honest to a fault, I’ll give her that. Her admitting she’d never have went near bobsledding if she’d managed to win a track medal was an unfortunate moment. I’m sure that endeared her to all her prospective bobsled teammates, knowing she considered their event of choice a fallback. That wasn’t quirky, just remarkably self-involved.

    But still hot

    Strange chick. Reminds me a bit of Hope Solo in that she seemed so refreshing at first, but the more you learn about her the less appealing she becomes.
