When you're 29 and single and live alone in a house with your dog, you surf Twitter, hoping to find someone worth talking to. Maybe even hoping to find a boyfriend or girlfriend. You know this. You do it—or your brothers and sisters do it, your friends from college do it, your sons and daughters do it. What you might not know is that you do it even if you're Lori "Lolo" Jones, American track and field star with several titles to her name. She's tried every online dating service, she tells former professional tennis player Mary Carillo in the embedded clip from HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel, but none of them have worked.
The clip is part of a package on Jones that will air Tuesday night at 10 p.m. EST. (Other segments from the hour-long episode will focus on South Korean female golfers, who make up 145 of the top 500 ranked professionals; Ironman triathlete Matt Long, who was given a one percent chance to recover and live after a bus literally ran him over; and Ray Greenhalge, who has a unique passion for boxing that he picked up from godfather and uncle Micky Ward.)
