Greenville alumna Sandi Morris (Arkansas) finished second in the pole vault at USATF Championships and will travel to Beijing in August for the IAAF World Championships.

Morris announced on facebook she signed a contract with Nike.

Quote from USATF

Sandi Morris, second place, 4.65m/15-3

“It came down to making bars on my first attempt. (Morris cleared her first four heights on her opening attempt.)

“At a big meet like this, it’s all about placement. You don’t want to have a bunch of misses when you get to the end.”

Sandi Morris' statement on Facebook:

Big news everyone! Yesterday, I signed a contract with Nike, and today, I made my first-ever USA World Team. You can catch me in Beijing in August wearing red, white, and blue. Two dreams came two in a matter of a couple days. Hard work does pay off, and so does having an amazing support system like I do. Thank you so much everyone!
