Olympic hurdler Lashinda Demus — who won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics — says her husband tried to strangle her and threatened to kill her … and she”s now desperate for protection … our sources has learned.

Demus just got a temporary restraining order against her husband, Jamel Mayrant — who was arrested and jailed a couple of weeks ago for domestic violence.  She claims the attack left her with bruises and a lump on her head.

The restraining order also protects their twin 6-year-old boys and her parents — because she claims he threatened all of them as well.

Demus also claims her husband is trashing her and damaging her career, saying in court docs,  “I”m a professional athlete … so I need no derogatory emails, pictures, texts, phone calls released about me on the web or to other people.”
