NMSU TRACK COACH RACHEL DINCOFF

NMSU assistant track coach qualifies for Olympics

Posted

New Mexico State University will have a presence during the track and field competition at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

NMSU volunteer track coach Rachel Dincoff qualified for the U.S. track  and field team with a third-place showing in the women’s discus competition.

Dincoff threw the discus 60.21 meters or 197 feet, 6 inches during the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon on June 19.

Her qualifying throw came on her fifth of six attempts. Only the top three women qualified for Tokyo.

Before her fifth attempt, she sat in fourth place, just out of qualifying position.

Dincoff has served as a volunteer assistant coach with NMSU since 2017, specializing in her work with the team’s throwers. During Dincoff’s tenure, NMSU has had two athletes qualify for the NCAA West Preliminary meet – Taniya Mitchell (hammer, 2019) and Yemisi Oroyinyin (shotput, 20121).

Before joining the Aggies’ staff, Dincoff was an All-American thrower at Auburn University.
