Alexandria high jumper Tynita Butts-Townsend has qualified for the U.S. Olympics.

Butts-Townsend, 31, joins Alexandria runner Noah Lyles and boxer Troy Isley on the team. The seven-time All-American has been ranked as ranked one of the top high-jumpers in the world, and had her best year competing in 2019 when she made it on Team USA for the World Games.

“It’s so unbelievable, I’M AN OLYMPIAN!” the 2009 T.C. Williams High School grad tweeted after qualifying at the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon.
