ATLANTA -

A Georgia State University student has used social media to score a date with U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones.

Jones agreed to go on a date with journalism major Bubby Lyles if he could accumulate more than 150,000 retweets.

The 21-year-old passed the mark last week.

Lyles is more than excited about meeting Jones as she continues to run the hurdles as well as train for the U.S. bobsled team.

"I really look up and admire her personality. She's very ambitious. I think it's admirable that she's doing bobsledding, going out of her way to really try to get a gold medal," Lyles said.

Neither Jones nor Lyles has said how they'll be spending their date or when it will actually be, but suggestions have been pouring in.

Now Lyles and 150,000 Twitter users are eagerly waiting for the big day.
