Janay DeLoach of Fairbanks is a world-class long jumper, yet she manages to remain relevant in the 100-meter hurdles.

Going fast will do that.

The 31-year-old Alaska Sports Hall of Famer posted a personal-best time of 12.83 seconds at the TrackTown Summer Series in New York, New York.

DeLoach finished second to New York native Queen Harrison in the elite eight-woman field.

DeLoach, of Eielson High fame, also clocked a 12.83 at the national championships last month in California.

She is better known for the long jump, having won Olympic bronze and world championship silver in her career as well being sponsored by Nike.
