"I am extremely proud and misty eyed over Sandi winning the Olympic Silver Medal!! She had huge height over 4.90m (16' 0.75"), but somehow barely knocked it off. It just wasn't her time to win the Gold. Knowing Sandi it will fuel her fire to break the world record which is only about 6" higher. Such and awesome competition and congratulations to everyone who made it to the Rio Olympics!" - Coach Rusty Shealy said on facebook
