EUGENE, Ore. (WANE) – A native of Dekalb County, Rachel Dincoff is an example of hard work and sacrifice turning into dreams coming true.

A few weeks ago, we did a story with Dincoff. At the time, the discus thrower was just an Olympics hopeful.

Now – she’s an Olympian.

Dincoff was one of the top three finishers at the Olympic trials in Eugene Oregon last week and will represent Team USA at the Summer Games in Tokyo later in July.

At the trials, she was in seventh place through three rounds. In the fifth, her throw of 197-6 placed her into third and sealed her spot on the team.
