Anna Hall Wins Gold At U.S. Olympic Trials

The 2024 U.S. Olympic Championships featured multiple Colorado native athletes this past week with five now set to compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics. 

Among the highlights...

After undergoing a challenging knee surgery this past January, Anna Hall earned her third consecutive U.S. heptathlon title with 6,614 points and has qualified for her first Olympic Games. 

The Valor Christian alum has been through a challenging journey. During the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials, Hall took a fall that resulted in a broken foot. Ever since then, she has been working to overcome self-doubt to make her Olympic dreams a reality.

Meanwhile, the 2021 Olympic Discus Champion Valarie Allman will look to defend her title this year in Paris.

After an undefeated season, the Silver Creek alum placed first in the discus with her throw of 70.73m. Allman is currently the world leader in this event. 

Niwot alum Elise Cranny set a season best of 14:40.36 in the 5,000m, placing runner-up and qualifying for her second Olympic Games.

Cranny also competed in the historic 1,500m final where she placed sixth in a personal best of 3:57.87. In this race, the top eight finishers broke four minutes!

Woody Kincaid, a Columbine alum, placed runner-up in the 10,000m in 27:50.74 and qualified for his second Olympic Games. 

Parker Wolfe was perhaps the shocker of the Trials, as the NCAA 5,000 champion qualified for his first Olympic Games in the 5,000m. The Cherry Creek alum clocked 13:10.75 to place third. While he did finish within a qualifying spot, he'll need to run under the Olympic standard of 13:05 to officially book his ticket to Paris.
