Along with her two titles she has also achieved national indoor titles in 2007, 2008, and 2009 for the 60 meter hurdles. Jones also collected gold medals at the World Indoor Championship in 2008 and 2010. The inspired Track runner orginally enrolled at Iowa State University through the Upward Science Bound programs before attending Lousiana State University earning a bachelors degree in economics. Although Jones has maintained a career as a professional athlete, she had also made charitable contributions by visiting Roosevelt High School and donating new running shoes for each member of the track team along with a 3,000 dollar check for indoor hurdles and improvement on the track surface. With this in mind we look forward to seeing her perform her best in the 2012 Olymics.

The media has tried to pair her with NFL star Tim Tewbow based on his faith and her commitment to staying a virgin until marriage. The Los Angeles Times reported that In a segment "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," the comely 29-year-old track star -- a 2008 Olympic contender who looked bound for a gold medal until she got tripped up near the finish line -- said she's never been able to get a man to commit to her because she's a virgin and won't have sex until marriage.
