The Controlled Chaos Of The Water Jump
The steeplechase is like hurdles set to the music of "Yakety Sax." Instead of barriers that tip over, the steeplechase contains four immovable barriers and a 30-inch wall set in front of a 12-foot-long pool of water. Sound crazy? U.S. Olympic hopeful Emma Coburn shows how it's done....more

Emma Coburn + Bowerman Track Club = Steeplechase Olympic Team

In search of a place to complete her NCAA eligibility, Frerichs decided to follow Butler to altitude and train in Albuquerque....more

Emma Coburn: Steeplechase barriers will 'leave you pretty scarred'
Four-time U.S. national steeplechase champion Emma Coburn knows a thing or two about making big leaps, so perhaps it's no surprise that she jumped at the chance to be in the 2016 Body Issue. During a short break in her Olympic training, Coburn spoke with ESPN's Morty Ain about climbing mountains, her "Game of Thrones" obsession and why you don't call them "hurdles."...more
