Coming Up on the Podcast: St. Louis Native and Olympic Athlete Deanna Price

On December 23rd, The Sports Take Lunch Break & Office Essentials will have the honor of hosting one of the greatest athletes that St. Louis has ever produced. Her name is Deanna Price. She is originally from Troy, Missouri and was born in 1993. After working her way up through the collegiate ranks at Southern Illinois University and winning back to back hammer throw NCAA titles, she made the 2016 USA Olympic Team and competed in Rio. Deanna followed up that tremendous accomplishment by then winning the gold medal at the 2019 World Championship last summer in Qatar. She is also the female American record holder for hammer throw (256 ft. 8in.) and has the 4th longest throw in world history.

She’s currently gearing up for the Olympic Trials in June 2020 as she looks to make her second Olympic team and hopefully bring back a medal from the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
