Temitope Adeshina ended her NCAA season in grand style by punching her ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympics in the women’s High Jump final at the NCAA Championships.

Adeshina scaled a Personal Best (PB), Meeting Record (MR) and National Record (NR) of 1.97m on her last attempt to rank 3rd based on countbacks behind Rose Yeboah and Elena Kulichenko who tied for 1st place with the same mark of 1.97m.

The Texas Tech freshman struggled quite a bit to regain her brilliant indoor form outdoors as her highest jump heading to the competition was a 1.90m jump, which doubled as a Seasons Best (SB).

After going past the superb 1.97m clearance, Adeshina tried to scale a height of 2.00m but wasn’t successful in all of her attempts.

Adeshina now holds the High Jump Indoor and Outdoor National Records previously held by Doreen Amata.
