COLUMBIA CITY â€” Itâ€™s not every day an athlete gets a call to participate in the Olympic Trials.
But for former Columbia City High School stand-out Leah Eber, itâ€™s only fitting.
Ranked as one of the top 24 long jumpers in the nation, Eber performs at the Olympic level. She got the call just hours before she was expected to jump.
She got up the next morning to get on a plane and fly to Omaha, Neb.
Athletes had 48 hours prior to the event to declare if they were going to compete in the trials, leaving Eber restless until she got the news.
