This month could mean a dream come true for a Vigo County athlete that soon may be on the world's biggest stage.
Tom McClanahan has more on an Olympic dream.
A standout high school athlete in several track events, Kylie's career took shape when she arrived on campus.
Kylie says, "Then I ended up just pole vaulting and really focusing on that one event which I think really helped in my preparation for everything and finally in my last two years I ended up jumping higher than expected, in my eyes, so, you know what, maybe one day I could be there."
And with the Olympic trials in less than a month, Kylie should have a good idea if she can be an Olympian between now and then with a meet this week in Eugene, Oregon, the same location of the trials.
Kylie says, "It's a pretty high caliber meet, uh, where some of the best in the world will be there so I'm hoping that will get me ready for the trials and then the next week I have a meet in New York with probably the same, the same people from the Prefontaine meet in Eugene will be there so it will be another high caliber meet in getting ready for the tryouts."
She's consistently been near the top of women's pole vaulting for several months and needs to make the top three.
Kylie says, "Last year I finished the year ranked number 2 in the country and I ended up winning the U.S. Outdoor Nationals and I made the world team and competed for the U.S. last year so I definitely have a legitimate shot at being in that top three this year.
The trials are two days of grueling competition and everything has to be just right to succeed. If intuition has anything to do with it you will see Kylie Hutson in London later this summer.
Kylie says, "It's going to be a good day, I have a feeling.">>The London Olympics begin July 27. NBC 2 is your Olympic Station. We will have more news about the games between now and then.
