FORT COLLINS, Colo. – As one of Colorado State’s most decorated track and field alumni Janay DeLoach has accomplished many feats. She will look to add to her resume August 27 and 28 as she represents the United States in the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, Korea.

The 13th edition of the World Championships will feature over 2,000 athletes from 200 countries. Around 500,000 spectators are expected to view the games in person over the nine-day competition that begins Aug. 27 and ends Sept. 4.

DeLoach will compete in the qualifying round of the long jump Aug. 27 with hopes of advancing to the final round, which will take place the following day.

During her four years at CSU DeLoach rewrote the record books and helped the track program reach new heights. She currently holds the school records in both the indoor and outdoor long jump of 21 feet, .75 inches and 21-4.25, respectively. Her senior year she won the Virginia K. Frank award for the most outstanding female athlete at Colorado State. She earned All-American honors in the long jump during both the indoor and outdoor season, placing fifth and sixth, respectively. She also captured both MWC championship long jump titles and took seventh at the USA Championships. DeLoach was later selected to compete for Team USA at the Pan Am Games, held in Rio de Janeiro.

DeLoach advanced to the World Championships after winning the long jump at the USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M., on Feb. 26.  Her mark of 22-11.25 was a then-world-leading mark. In June she earned a runner-up finish in the same event at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore., with a mark of 22-10.5.

Outside of competition DeLoach also acts as a volunteer assistant coach for the Rams.
