About Janay
DeLoach admits that she had a bit of a culture shock when she went to college at Colorado State after her high school career at Elison AFB in Alaska. DeLoach’s high school team would only compete in a handful of meets each year, sometimes as few as only two. DeLoach dabbled in many areas as her school’s top basketball scorer and even a cheerleader. During DeLoach’s freshman campaign at CSU, she says that she was mainly competing for the scholarship money, but didn’t love the sport. It wasn’t until her sophomore year when she went to a meet at Cal Berkley and competed against Olympian Grace Upshaw that she not only realized she had a future in the sport, but also fell in love with the long jump. The 2012 season saw DeLoach become an Olympian and win a bronze medal by just 1 centimeter. In 2013 DeLoach earned her first USA Outdoor Championship with a leap of 6.89m/22-7.25. DeLoach has gotten off to a fast start in 2014, claiming her third Indoor national title in the long jump to go along with a runner-up finish in the 60mH. DeLoach met her husband, Patrick Soukup, while both were competing for Colorado State’s track and field team. Deloach received her bachelor’s degree in psychology and human development and is pursuing her master’s degree in occupational therapy.
