Anna Hall is the greatest female athlete in the United States for the second-straight year. The 22-year-old, who spent three years at Georgia and two years at Florida, rolled into Eugene for the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships over the weekend and left as a national champion— again.
Anderson Bobo, an extremely talented content creator with the Gators, was in Eugene all weekend to document the UF athletes in competition. He took a photo of Hall completely parallel, in full extension during the long jump that really puts the required discipline and athleticism in perspective.
She can fly!
Hall won the heptathlon event shortly after graduation in 2022 and defended her crown in 2023.
The heptathlon is a seven-event contest that is the women’s ultimate track and field test. It is typically a two-day program that crowns the best all-around female athlete.
On Day 1, competitors typically run the 100-meter hurdles, and 200-meter flat, while also competing in the high jump and shot put. Day 2 is comprised of the long jump, javelin throw and 800-meter flat.
Competitors earn points based on their performance in each discipline, and the athlete who scores the most points is crowned the overall winner.
Hall earned 6,677 points over the course of the seven disciplines to out-score second-place finisher Taliyah Brooks by more than 300.
Anna Hall had herself a weekend!
Hall led after Day 1:
- 100-Meter Hurdles — 13.08 seconds
- High Jump — 1.87 meters
- Shot Put — 14.72 meters
- 200-Meter Flat — 23.45 seconds
Hall further distanced herself on Day 2:
- Long Jump — 6.40 meters
- Javelin Throw — 43.90 meters
- 800-Meter — Two minutes, 10.91 seconds
With dominant back-to-back days, Hall became the back-to-back U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Champion in the Heptathlon.
Hall is not even a true jumper, which only makes it more impressive. Imagine the numbers she would put up if she focused singularly on that event full-time.
As the national champion heptathlete, Hall will represent the U.S. at Worlds in Budapest next month!
