Another local athlete will be taking part in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Green High School graduate Kelsie Ahbe joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about her latest venture going to Brazil representing the country of Canada to compete in track and field as a pole vaulter.

When asked about how she felt when she was chosen to go to the Olympics,  she said it was an unbelievable experience.

"I'm pumped, I just feel really lucky to have this experience," she said.  

Ahbe said her dream of being in Olympics has changed over the years, but she says she's excited to compete against the best in the sport of pole vaulting.

Kelsie is currently training in Nashville, Tennessee before she heads to Rio in August.
