TOKYO (WANE) – Dekalb’s Rachel Dincoff let the disc fly while she competed in her first Olympics in the women’s discus throw event.

The Auburn University graduate reached a top throw of 56.22 meters which was 12th in her qualification heat, however, the throw was not far enough to advance her to the finals in a few days. 

This year, 32 competitors entered the competition with the 12 athletes with the longest throws moving on to the final, which is scheduled for Monday, August 2nd.

Dincoff finished in third place during the women’s discus final at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials last month.
