Former Tiger track star preparing for Olympic trials
Quintunya Chapman

Former Bradwell Institute and Georgia track athlete, Quintunya Chapman is preparing for the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon, in July.

Chapman just took first place overall in the women’s heptathlon at the fifth Pan American Combined Events cup last weekend in Ottawa.
According to the International Association of Athletics Federation’s website, Chapman produced the third best heptathlon of her career including a personal best in the shot put of 14.88 meters.

She also ran her fastest 800-meter race, finishing in 2:13.58, and tossed the javelin 42.26 meters, equaling her season best.

Chapman told reporters from the IAAF that her results meant she has the potential to build on her training physically and mentally as she prepares for the trials coming up in about two weeks.
