She’s received attention throughout these Olympic Games for her great looks and unusual background (she’s a virgin!!!).

But Lolo Jones had a chance today to quiet the critics and make headlines for her actual exploits on the track. Did the sprinter make up for her 2008 stumble and earn a Medal in today’s 100-meter hurdles?

Unfortunately… no.

Jones finished in fourth place by one-hundredth of a second, crossing the finish line in 12.58 seconds. But it was still a strong event for the U.S. team: Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells finished in second and third place, respectively.

Australia’s Sally Pearson took the Gold with an Olympic record time of 12.35. But might she date Tim Tebow?

See. Jones might end up a winner after all.
