DeAnna Price leads Team USA to Pan American Games

INDIANAPOLIS — A strong contingent of 77 Team USATF athletes is set to represent the United States at the 19th Pan American Games, scheduled to take place from October 22 to November 4 at the Julio Martínez National Stadium in Santiago, Chile. These athletes include a remarkable lineup of 17 competitors who recently showcased their talent at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest this August.

Organized by the Panam Sports Organization, this prestigious event will see participation from teams representing 41 nations across North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Team USATF boasts a balanced delegation with 40 male and 37 female athletes, led by accomplished stars like DeAnna Price, the women’s hammer bronze medalist in Budapest and American record holder, as well as Brooke Andersen, the reigning Oregon22 world champion. Andersen, who clinched silver at the 2019 Pan Am Games in Lima, Peru, is ready to make her mark once again.

In addition to Price and Andersen, the American team features returning medalists from the 2019 edition, including Omar Craddock, who secured gold in the men’s triple jump, Marisa Howard, the silver medalist in the women’s 3000 steeplechase, and Jordan Geist, who earned silver in the men’s shot put. The impressive performance in 2019 saw Team USATF collect a total of 33 medals, with seven of them being gold. This accomplishment further solidified the United States’ dominance on the all-time medal table, with their count more than doubling that of the closest competitor, Cuba.
