We’re trying something a little different today. I decided to stimulate some other senses and put this interview on video. It gives you a chance to see more of an athelete’s personality (and Lolo has tons of that!), as well as pick and choose what questions actually interest you. Personally, I find them all interesting — but I’m the one asking them so that’s a no brainer. Click to watch the videos you want, and skip the ones you don’t. I hope you enjoy Lolo. She’s a one-of-a-kind individual and one heck of a hurdler who’s looking to repeat as Indoor World Champion. Wish her luck!
*The official name on your birth certificate is Lori. Please explain how Lolo came about. Is it your racing alter ego, or do you just feel it has a little more pizzazz?
*Let’s talk about the infamous fall for a sec. What was the biggest life lesson that tumble taught you?
*I am constantly getting asked if I know Lolo Jones…from men. The interest is definitely there, yet you’re still single. What are the biggest obstacles to finding a quality date on Friday night?
*This past year you wore your birthday suit for the ESPN body issue. As a sport that wears next to nothing in competition, we are pretty used to showing a lot of skin but was that shoot hard to do from a modesty standpoint?
*On the circuit, you’re known as the energizer bunny. You just never stop competing. Is there any reason in particular you take that approach?
*Where does your twitter inspiration come from?
*(Blog Reader Question) What is your personal, inspiring verse from the Bible?
