Brittany Smith

Olympic Hopeful
Oak Park, IL Illinois State University Normal, IL

Hi Everyone!
My name is Brittany, and I am a thrower that is new to the professional life! I grew up with throwing being another sport for me, but since college, throwing has become a focus and dream of mine. I have my mother, siblings, friends, and supporters to thank for how far I have come. I am working to raise money as I work towards the 2016 US Olympic Trials. Thank you for the support! :)

Born and raised west of Chicago in Oak Park, IL, Brittany attended Oak Park River Forest High School prior to Illinois State University, where she earned a degree in Secondary Mathematics Education and now works part-time and trains for the coming World Championships and Olympics. While competing for the Redbirds, Brittany took NCAA runner-up honors in both the hammer and shot put in 2013. Now post-college, she is one of the few professional throwers that competes in the shot put and the hammer.
