About Chelsea
At the 2012 Olympic Trials, Hayes set a PR by nearly a foot and a half to finish as a surprising runner-up and make her first Olympic team. Hayes's trip to the London Olympics was her first time out of the U.S. She attended high school in several states as her family rebounded from the effects of Hurricane Katrina. After two years of junior college in Kansas, she joined the Louisiana Tech track team for her final two season of eligibility quickly becoming one of the finer track and field athletes the school has seen. Hayes is the first athlete from LA Tech to compete for the U.S. in the Olympics.
