Deanna Price threw the 4th longest throw in history at the US Championships. Her series was spectacular: 75.66m, 77.51m, 76.40m, 75.77m, 76.72m, and then, BOOM!, a final throw of 78.24m! The new American record, and World Leader! This is the second win and second consecutive AR in the hammer.

Deanna Pice had this to say on her throw: "This year has been hard. My right upper body was going forward and it also affected my hip flexer and right leg. There were times when I couldn't walk.My physical therapist was holding me together with duct tape and wires.."

This podcast is to salute Deanna on her amazing throw and new AR! Special thanks to Mike Deering on the production of the podcast!
