Career Highlights: In a bit of an upset, Bingson qualified for her first Olympics by finishing .02 meters behind Amber Campbell in the hammer with a throw of 71.78 meters at June's U.S. trials. She was one of the meet's biggest surprises because she did not have the "A" standard required to make the team coming into the event. Her qualification came shortly after wrapping up her senior season at UNLV and finishing third at the NCAA championships. Bingson had a storied career with the Runnin' Rebels, for whom she was a three-time Mountain West champion and two-time USTFCCCA All-American. She set the program's hammer record eight times, the last coming in May with a throw of 71.04 meters at the NCAA outdoor preliminary championship, establishing a meet record in the process.
