Leading the impressive lineup in the women’s Hammer Throw is the unbeatable world champion Brooke Andersen from the United States. Andersen, who has won her last three competitions and set a world-leading mark in the last outing, has been in scintillating form this season, and her undefeated streak in the event remains unchallenged.

Recently, the American achieved a remarkable feat by joining the elite 80-meter club, securing victory with a mighty throw of 80.17m to set a lifetime best at the 2023 USATF Throws Festival in Tucson, Ariz., earlier this month.

Joining Andersen in the competition is the formidable 2019 world champion, DeAnna Price, also from the United States. Like her compatriot, Price has also been enjoying a remarkable season, seeking her fourth consecutive victory. Her presence adds an extra layer of excitement to the already strong field.

Canadian world silver medalist and 2022 Commonwealth Games champion Camryn Rogers, who recently set a national record of 77.84m in Walnut, Calif., aims to build on her success and deliver another exceptional performance. Rogers is determined to surpass her personal best, and her competitors will be closely watching her progress.

Another top contender is Janee Kassanavoid from the United States, the current world bronze medalist. Kassanavoid enters tonight’s clash as the third-best thrower in the world this season with an effort of 76.60m.

The Women’s Hammer Throw start list at the 2023 USATF LA Grand Prix boasts an array of super-talented athletes. In addition to Andersen, Price, Rogers, and Kassanavoid, the competition will feature throwers such as Americans Annette Echikunwoke and Alyssa Wilson, European bronze medalist Sara Fantini from Italy, and Jillian Weir from Canada.
