Chelsea Hayes’ magical year ended Tuesday.
The most decorated track and field performer in Louisiana Tech University history closed out a super senior season by placing No. 16 in the women’s long jump at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
Hayes had a mark of 20-10.75 to put her among the Top 20 competitors in her event and also No. 8 in her group. The top dozen finishes moved on to today’s medal round at Olympic Stadium.
