Jess (Herauf) Lehman, after a 12th-place finish in the heptathlon at the United States Olympic Track and Field Trials, has been selected to the U.S. team for the Thorpe Cup, scheduled for July 29-30 in Fayetteville, Ark.
The Thorpe Cup is an international competition between the U.S. and Germany with teams that are made up of up to seven men and seven women that compete in the decathlon and heptathlon. The top five men’s scores and top three women’s scores are combined to determine the winning teams.
Lehman’s highest finish in the heptathlon trials was third, which came in the javelin after a heptathlon career-best mark of 155 feet, 4 inches.
Lehman is a 2011 graduate of Dickinson High school and ended her collegiate career at the University of Minnesota in the spring as the two-time defending Big Ten Conference heptathlon and pentathlon champion. She holds program records in both events, and was a four-time All-American for the Gophers.
