A former Saluki has broken the American hammer throw record for the third time in under a month.

DeAnna Price reclaimed the mark to win the USATF Outdoor Championships this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.


Two former SIU hammer throwers seem to be making the chase for the American record a personal competition.

Six days after DeAnna Price set the record, Saluki Hall of Famer Gwen Berry reclaimed her record with an opening throw at a meet in Poland Friday.
