Our student Amanda Bingson represented the U.S. in the hammer throw at the Olympics Games in London.
Bingson is currently majoring in interdisciplinary studies with areas of study in physical education and psychology.
"My degree has given me the opportunity to prepare for what I want to do after my career in athletics," she says. She hopes to use her experience and education to help future collegiate student-athletes meet their goals and aspirations.
She completed an internship at Texas State University in the track and field program under the supervision of throws Coach Greg Watson.
