Hayes No. 20 at Trials
EUGENE, Ore. —Louisiana Tech’s Chelsea Hayes concluded her season in the 100-meter dash Saturday evening as she finished No. 20 in the semifinal round of the 100m at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Hayes ran 11.59 and finished sixth in her heat, placing 20th overall. The entire field of eight in the finals round is filled with professional sprinters with the lone exception being Oregon’s English Gardner.
Despite not advancing in the 100-m dash, Hayes’ Olympic dreams can still be fulfilled.
She will compete in the qualifying round in the long jump on Thursday.
