• Pitt All-American sprinter hopes to make Olympic team


    PITTSBURGH - Pitt All-American sprinter Cambrya Jones is one step away from representing the Red, White and Blue in London.

    "It would be an honor for me to put on that USA uniform," Jones told Channel 11's Rich Walsh.

    Jones has been chasing this dream since she was 7 years old.

    "It would definitely mean a lot," she said.

    The Swissville native and Woodland Hills graduate has been getting faster all season and hopes all the hard work pays off Wednesday at the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore.

    "I've made it this far. I've made it to the Olympic trials. It's not like anybody can do that," said Jones.

    Jones ran both the 100 meters and 200 meters at Pitt but will only compete in the 200 meters in the trials.

    "Two hunded meters is definitely my favorite," Jones said.

    When asked by Walsh what she has to do to make the team, Jones made it simple.

    "Run fast," she said.

    Pitt head track coach Alzono Webb thinks she has to run her best to make the team.

    "I think she has to run probably a 22 low, very low," which would be a personal best according to Webb.

    "My coach says beat as many people as you can," Jones responded.
