DeAnna Price Makes Hammer History at World Championships

U.S. hammer-thrower DeAnna Price made history at the Track & Field World Championships in Doha becoming the first-ever World Champion for the United States in the Hammer Throw.

Price, the American record holder and 2019 world leader launched a 76.87m/252-2 opener and then improved in round three with a 77.54/254-5 that ranks as the all-time No. 5 US performance. Only six women in history, including Price, have ever thrown farther.
