UCLA Women's Track And Field Update

Aug. 29, 2003

UCLA great Amy Acuff, who during her Bruin career won five NCAA high jump titles, on Friday will compete at the 2003 World Track & Field Championships in Paris.

On Friday she will compete in the qualifying round with the final set for this weekend.

Acuff, who competed at UCLA from 1994-97, several weeks ago high jumped a personal-best 6-7, the top U. S. mark this season and No. 5 in the World. The two-time Olympian won her fourth USA title in June, jumping 6-4.75. Acuff's performances this season have put her in a position to win an international championships medal for the first time since winning the gold medal at the 1997 World University Games.
