She was never really away but sprinter Jenna Prandini is back after what she terms a “reset.” After a subpar ’17, the 25-year-old Californian has chalked up career milestones this summer: first Diamond League win (the London 200), a PR at the distance (22.16, same race) and the second USATF title of her career, also at 200 and following on a win in ’15. She also finished 3rd in the USATF 100, with her 10.98 there her first sub-11 since the ’16 Olympic Trials. “I’m finally healthy now so I kind of just raced myself into shape this year,” she says, with her sights now set on the DL 200 final. “But I’m starting to feel a lot more comfortable on the track and everything’s just so much smoother when I run.” This month, Prandini won the NACAC 100 crown with a 10.96 that equaled her fourth-fastest clocking ever and was her fastest since ’16. Heading towards the winner-take-all August 31 DL finale, Prandini is tied for the 200’s points lead (28) with Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson. Among the sparkling cast of qualifiers in the half-lap the only sprinter Prandini hasn’t won against this year is the undefeated Shaunae Miller-Uibo. Rio Olympian Prandini, one could assess, has not had a season like this one since ’15, when she turned pro early after the World Championships. Her feats on behalf of the Ducks earned Prandini T&FN’s Woman Collegiate Athlete Of The Year honor (and the USTFCCCA’s Bowerman Award). Jenna Prandini (born November 20, 1992) is an American track and field athlete, known for sprinting, but originally began her career doing jumping events. She is a two-time national champion at 200 meters (2015, 2018) and a 2016 Olympian. At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, she finished 10th in the 200 meters. Prandini came to the University of Oregon with the same triple threat credentials, winning all three events (100m, 200m and long jump) at the 2011 CIF California State Meet for Clovis High School in Clovis, California. By coincidence, all of Prandini's major championships have essentially occurred at home. The CIF meet is held in Clovis at cross town Buchanan High School, the NCAA Championships and USA Outdoor Championships were at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, though for the Junior Championships, also at Hayward Field, she moved to Oregon for school three months later.
Jenna Prandini, a 2011 graduate of Clovis High, won the 200 meters at the U. Track and Field Championships in De Moines, Iowa on June 24 with a time of 22.62. Courtesy of Jonathan Chaves/USOC Jenna Prandini, the pride of Clovis High and a 2016 Olympian, is back at full throttle, evidenced by her win in the 200 meters at the U. Track and Field Championships at Drake Stadium in De Moines, Iowa on June 24. Prandini, sponsored by Puma, took to Instagram to express her thoughts after the meet: “So happy to come away with a win at the USAs! National team and competed in the Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. National 200-meter race in 2015 with a time of 22.20, ran 22.62 to cap a weekend that also saw her place third in the 100 meters at 10.98. However, Prandini ran a solid 200-meter race into the headwind to beat reigning world 400 meter champion Phyllis Francis The win marked Prandini’s return to world class form after recovering from a injury throughout most of 2017. Coming back from injury is never easy, but all the patience and hours of rehab paid off! Huge thanks to everyone that got me back out on the track! ” While prepping at Clovis High from 2008-2011, Prandini capped off a remarkable career when in her senior year she won a USATF national title, three California state crowns (100, 200, long jump) and an appearance at the Pan Am Junior Championships. At the CIF State Track and Field Championships held at Veterans Memorial Stadium, she captured the 100 in 11.69, the 200 in 23.81 and the long jump with a mark of 19-11.75. After graduating from Clovis High, Prandini attended the University of Oregon where she was named an All-American 15 times, won 3 individual NCAA National Championships, led her team to the first outdoor championship in 30 years in 2014 when she scored 24 points, was an Academic All-American, named University of Oregon Athlete of the Year, The Honda Collegiate Track Athlete of the Year Award and in 2015 won the Bowerman Award for the best female Student Athlete in the country. SAN ANTONIO – Here’s a little history lesson for you. This is the fourth time that The Bowerman Presentation will originate from the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa deep in the heart of Texas. The Bowerman’s first trip to the Lone Star State came way back in 2010 when Ashton Eaton of Oregon and Queen Harrison of Virginia Tech took home collegiate track & field’s highest honor. Eaton is the last male athlete from the Pac-12 Conference to win The Bowerman, while Harrison was the first of two women from the ACC to earn the honor (Brianna Rollins of Clemson in 2013). READ MORE: Harrison, Eaton Named 2010 Winners of The Bowerman We returned to San Antonio the following year, which is when Ngoni Makusha of Florida State and Jessica Beard of Texas A&M hoisted the 35-pound trophy. Makusha remains the only male athlete from the ACC to win The Bowerman and Beard is one of two athletes from Texas A&M to bring the award back to College Station (Deon Lendore in 2014).

Jenna Elizabeth Prandini grew up in Clovis, Central California, and is the youngest daughter of Carlo and Theresa Prandini. She liked to compete in races with her older brother Mark and his friends and would most often beat them. Jenna looked up to her sister Christine who was also a great athlete. Jenna was the little girl who would kick the ball far in the soccer field, run past everyone and take that pass from herself to score most of the goals to win the games! Each of Jenna’s parents were the oldest of eight siblings, so she has been surrounded her entire life by a large extended family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who have been her biggest fans! In fact the bigger the event the more family and friends would attend. This was never more apparent than last June at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, when over 50 family and friends descended upon Hayward Field wearing, “Go Jenna Go” shirts to cheer on their favorite athlete! Their dedication was rewarded as Jenna scored 26 points and led the Ducks to their first women’s Outdoor NCAA National Championship in 30 years! Harriet, her maternal grandmother, calls Jenna, “her little deer” and has spent time with her since she was little cooking, and sharing words of encouragement. is 83 years old and has videotaped nearly all her races in person or off the TV or computer since she was in elementary school.
