Rouhlac jumps into national contention at USA Outdoors

June 30, 2006

 Albany - Former Albany State track standout Brandon Roulhac said his performance at the USA Outdoor Track and Field championships last weekend would determine his future in the sport.

Brandon's future is looking very bright after he placed fifth in the triple jump with a leap of more than 52 feet.

That fifth place finish has qualified him to compete in the World Cup challenge in Greece in Augusta and the prestigious Professional Athletic Association track meet in Eugene, Oregon.

That meet is a qualifier for the European Cup.

Brandon Rouhlac's goal is to make the US Olympic team in 2008 and his fifth place finish at the USA outdoor championships has also earned him the right to work at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in San Diego.
