RIO DE JANEIRO (BRA): US high jumper Chaunte Lowe traveled to the Olympic test event last weekend at her own expense to familiarise herself with the arena, informs AP. “I feel like it’s an investment if you want to succeed and do well here,” she said. “Every time I go I have a really hard time adjusting to the new surface. So I wanted to come early and feel it. There are adjustments that needed to be made, and I made those adjustments. Now I feel very confident going into the Games.” Lowe, who will be looking to make her fourth American Olympic team this summer, cleared a world-leading 1.96m.
