Born: June 3, 1962

With 25 national titles in the shot put and discus combined, Connie Price-Smith (Saint Charles, Missouri) owns the distinction of being the winningest USATF female athlete in her events. She made every U.S. national team from the 1987 World University Games to 2001 World Indoors and is considered the best USA discus and shot put combo athlete of all time. A four-time Olympian in both the shot put and discus throw, Price-Smith was the first American woman to have a top-ten world ranking in the shot put for five consecutive years (1995-1999). She was the 1995 World Indoor silver medalist in the shot put, is a two-time Pan Am Games gold medalist in the shot (1995, 1999) and added a silver in 1991 and a discus bronze in 1987. Since ending her competitive career, Connie spent 14 seasons at the helm of Southern Illinois University’s track & field program, and most recently served as the head women’s coach for the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team at the Rio Olympic Games. She is currently in her second season as the head track & field coach at the University of Mississippi.
