|Hayes places 16 th at Olympics|
Louisiana Tech's Chelsea Hayes completed a magical senior year at Tech Tuesday as she ﬁnished 16th in the women's long jump at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Hayes mark of 20-10.75 (6.37m) placed her 16th overall and eighth in her group with the top 12 advancing to the medal round. The last mark to advance to the medal round was 21-0 (6.40m), only 1.25 inches better than Hayes' mark.
A native of New Orleans, her opening jump of 20-0.5 (6.11m) left her in 23rd place before she jumped her 20-10.75 mark and vaulting her into 12th place. Other jumpers had dropped her to 15th before her ﬁnal jump of 29-10.25 (6.05m) left her out of the 12-person ﬁnal medal round.
Following the competition, Hayes tweeted, "Thanks everyone that supported me fell short but I'm not done this is just the beginning... But had the BEST collegiate season ever" .
Her Olympic experience caps an incredible senior year of competition at Louisiana Tech as she set numerous records. She ends her collegiate career as an Olympian, national runner-up, six-time All-American, 14-time WAC Champion and 18-time All-WAC honoree.
Her Olympic qualifying long jump mark of 23-3.5 (7.10m) will likely stand as a Louisiana Tech and Western Athletic Conference record for some time and is even a collegiate best mark.
Hayes was the third athlete from Louisiana Tech to compete in the Olympics with all three athletes competing in three diﬀerent events while representing three diﬀerent countries.
