TOKYO, JAPAN ( KTSM) – New Mexico State volunteer assistant monitor and area coach Rachel Dincoff reached the head of her sport on Saturday morning in Tokyo.
Making her Olympics debut within the girls’s discus competitors, Dincoff unleashed a longest throw of 56.22 meters, adequate for Twelfth place in Group A of the prelims, however sadly, didn’t advance her to the finals on Monday.
Dincoff received off to an honest begin and was in sixth place after her first throw. After a foul on her second toss, her greatest throw got here on her last Tokyo try.
Dincoff qualified for her first Olympics thanks to a clutch throw at the US Olympic Trials in June that resulted in a 3rd place end on the Trials, and a ticket to Tokyo.
Dincoff is the second athlete with New Mexico State ties to bow out of the 2020 Video games, following swimmer Lina Khiyara, who competed within the 200m freestyle on Monday. Canadian golfer Alena Sharp will start her keep in Tokyo Aug. 4.
