ATLANTA, Ga. --- Former Georgia Tech high jumper, Chaunte Lowe is comfortable on the world stage. 

A two-time Olympian, she competed in Athens and Rome, Lowe sees something delightfully different about London.

At 28-years-old Lowe returned to her alma mater, Georgia Tech, to workout with her longtime coach Nat Page. And together the two went over every detail and prepared Lowe for this year's Olympic Trials.

"Everything is right in place this time," Lowe said. "I don't want to mess it up."

Chaunte cleared 6 feet 7 inches and is now heading for London as America's best high jumper. During her previous two trips to the Olympics, Lowe didn't medal. 

But after setting American and World Indoor Track and Field records this year, Chaunte Lowe expects to have a spot on the medal stand in London.

Now married and the mother of two, for Chante, earning an Olympic medal would be a golden moment indeed.
