  • Olympian Hoops

    We've got Olympic fever here at LooptyHoops headquarters, and we're loving the huge gold hoop earrings of American high jumper Chaunté Lowe!


     

    Chaunté literally sets the bar higher. In 2010 the two-time Olympian broke the American record in the outdoor high jump, clearing a height of six feet, eight inches. It was no small feat; before Lowe, the record had stood for 22 years. She did it again this February, smashing a 14-year record in the indoor high jump. And here’s where you start wondering if she’s hiding a superhero cape under her sports bra: She did all that record-setting less than a year after giving birth. “My doctor wanted me to wait six weeks before I started training again. I waited two days!” says Lowe, who lives in Loganville, Georgia. “I’m ready to win in London, to get on that podium.” She’s clearly got her eyes on the prize, but the rest of us are in for a treat: “I love to pump the crowd up before I compete. I want to give them a good show! If they’d let me jump in the types of outfits they wear on Dancing With the Stars, I would.”
