Empire’s connection to the first American Gold in Steeplechase

So many in the track world are all a buzz over the two American women going one-two in the Steeplechase at the World Championships.
It was a first time feat for an American women, to win gold, at a World Championships for that event.

The Redwood Empire’s tie to this was from 6 years ago when our own Sara “Bei” Hall became the first American women in any major international competition “2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico” to win gold in the Steeplechase.

If you have facebook one of my favorites about this new race was watching Coburn’s sister watching the race on TV, true excitement.
