Trackstar Lolo Jones.

As a college runner, I get giddy when the summer Olympics rolls around. This year, Lolo Jones is taking home the gold as my ultimate Olympics crush, giving me every bit of inspiration I need to hit the gym.

Since she first took the scene at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 60-meter and 100-meter hurdle superstar has received plenty of press for her medal-worthy beauty and grace, on and off the track.

The 5 ft, 9 in 29-year-old is the American record holder in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 7.72, and placed third in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2012 Olympic trials, nabbing her a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

Aside from her all-star hurdle capabilities, killer bod and rock hard abs, Jones has a truly natural beauty that draws you in from start to finish.

With a sun-kissed, smooth complexion, soft chestnut hair, bold brows and high cheek bones, Jones knows how to wear just the right amount of makeup to look polished, yet completely natural.

To get the hurdler's flawless face, apply a tinted moisturizer, like this Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, over your face for an even, warm skin tone. Follow with a soft peach-pink blush, like this Estée Lauder 'Pure Color' Powder Blush Poppy Passion, to highlight your cheekbones.

For hair, blow-dry with a smoothing product like Fekkai Smooth Hair Frizz Control Polish for soft, luscious locks that bounce in your sport-inspired high ponytail.

For a 7-second beauty inspiration, tune in this Friday, August 3rd, to watch Lolo take the track in the first round of the 100 meters!
