Former TCU long jumper Lorraine Ugen to compete in Olympics on Tuesday

Track and Field: 42nd Prefontaine Classic Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Call her a true "Leap Frog."

Former TCU star long jumper Lorraine Ugen has made it to the Olympics and will compete in the long jump Tuesday evening, representing Team Great Britain.

Ugen was part of TCU's track team from 2012-2014, becoming a seven-time All-American and two-time NCAA Champion in the long jump (2013 outdoor and 2014 indoor). She was also a prolific sprinter, earning multiple honors as part of the 4x100 relay team.

Ugen nearly made the 2012 Olympics but missed by one centimeter, as she shares in this video by TCU. Check out her story below.

The Women’s Long Jump Qualifying starts at 7:05pm CT.
