Reece Headed to Beijing

The Olympics will be here before you know it, and the Mid South will be well represented in the Beijing games.

One of the athletes to keep an eye on...Ole Miss Long jumper Brittney Reese.

The former Rebel becomes the sixth athlete in the school's history to qualify for the Olympic Games, and she did it in a big way.

Reese finishes *first* in the long jump last night in the Oregon trials with a school record jump of 22-09.75.

The NCAA Long Jump champ and National Field Athlete of the year heads into the games having won the individual title in the long jump in every meet she's competed.
