Talk about your endurance athletes.

Archer Jennifer Nichols, who will compete for Team USA in her third straight Olympics this summer in London, has revealed that hurdler Lolo Jones is not alone in the virginity department.

Nichols, too, is saving herself for marriage.

In fact, the 28-year-old arrow-slinger from Cheyenne, Wyo., tells Us Weekly that she didn't experience her first kiss until she got engaged to fiancé Chris Hardy, 25.

"I made that commitment when I was about 13 years old," she says. "I knew that I wanted to save my kiss on top of purity. I felt like a kiss was something very special and I wanted to save that."

So, Nichols enjoyed that milestone when she was 27, but she's waiting on having sex until she's a married woman—which she will be on Sept. 1, according to USA Today.

"Chris is extremely involved in the planning process," Nichols said of her college sweetheart to Us. "We Skype like crazy. We email links back and forth of wedding venues and photographers."

Nichols has yet to medal in the Olympics, so we hope that's in the cards for her in the next few weeks.

There is a first time for everything after all.
