Volunteer assistant women’s track & field coach at NM State achieved a longtime goal on Saturday morning, despite not advancing to the finals of the discus event.
For the first round of qualifying for the women’s discus event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Olympic Stadium played host to Rachel Dincoff and 14 other athletes from around the world. In all, there were 31 athletes from all around the world competing for just 12 slots in the championship round.

The first of three throws in the round, the Aggies’ unpaid assistant coach threw 55.10 metres. Dincoff finished 12th out of 15 competitors in group A after registering a throw of 56.22 metres despite making a critical error on her second attempt.
Across both Preliminary Rounds, Dincoff Placed 27th out of 31 Competitors.
Valarie Allman, a teammate of Dincoff’s from the United States of America, threw the farthest of any qualifier in the women’s discus competition and so advanced to the finals. Her distance was 66.42.
Three current or former New Mexico State Aggie athletes and coaches will be competing in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, including Dincoff. For Morocco, incoming freshman swimmer Lina Khiyara swam in the women’s 200-meter freestyle quarterfinals earlier this week.
One more alumna of New Mexico State University will be taking part in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. That person is Alena Sharp, a female golfer, who will begin a four-round period of individual stroke play on Tuesday.
