SULPHUR, Okla. -- Morning news anchor, Kent Ogle, the 55-year-old middle brother of the Ogle family news dynasty, won a high jump competition over the weekend.

Ogle performed several successful jumps and scored the gold medal when he hit 4 feet 4 inches.

He competed in the 55+ age bracket of the State Games of Oklahoma in Sulphur, Oklahoma.

The Games feature more than 14 different events and are held at multiple venues throughout the summer.

The track and field portion of the competition was Saturday June 14th at Sulphur High School.

Ogle's accomplishment is even more remarkable considering he hasn't jumped since 1978!

In fact, he was so nervous about the competition Saturday, he didn't even tell his wife he was going.

"I didn't want to jynx it." Ogle said on the show Monday morning. "I didn't tell anyone."

Kent Ogle moves on to the national competition in Omaha, Nebraska.

He's hoping a viewer with a high jump pit might agree to let him practice a few times before the upcoming national competition.

Good luck!!
