About Lacy
A veteran of World Championships competition, Janson has established herself as one of the top vaulters in the U.S. After finishing 10th at the 2008 U.S. Trials, Janson made the podium in 2012 to secure her first trip to the Olympic Games. She had an outstanding year in 2010 that produced three marks over her previous PR set in 2008 and ended with a #1 U.S. ranking from T&FN. Janson upped her personal best by almost a foot from 2005 to 2006. Janson is the second woman in FSU school history to win an NCAA national title twice in the same event.
