She continues to achieve personal bests in each of her succeeding Olympic competitions. In 2004, she recorded a 1.85m jump in the qualifying round. In 2008, she jumped 1.93 meters for a Bronze medal. In 2012 she jumped 1.99 meters to take 6th place. In 2016, she recorded a 1.97 meter jump for a 3rd place finish, earning another Bronze medal. Her Olympic participation has taken her to Athens, Beijing, London and Rio de Janiero. From 2010 to 2012, she broke the American high jump record 3 times.

Chaunte already has her sights on the 2020 Olympics, thus raising the bar even higher for her accomplishments on the world stage.
