Cohen and Lovett Punch Tickets to the Olympics

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two more Lobos, former and current, from The University of New Mexico track and field team have punched their tickets to the Tokyo Olympics. Adva Cohen will represent Israel in the 3000m steeplechase, and Django Lovett will represent Canada in the high jump.

Cohen earned a spot on the Israeli team based on her world ranking. She currently sits 40th in the world in the event and holds a personal-best time of 9:29.74, which she set in 2018.

At the Canadian 2021 Olympic and Paralympic Track and Field Trials in Montreal, Lovett clinched a first-place finish after clearing the 2.33m mark.

Both athletes will be making their Olympic debut this summer.
