The list of accomplishments for University of Oregon runner Jordan Hasay is not short. In fact, over the weekend she won three national championships! The sophomore from Arroyo Grande, California, pulled in her first NCAA national title when she won the mile in 4:33.01. Her personal best also broke a school record. That’s not easy to do at Oregon. Hasay then won the 3,000 meter title which helped her Ducks win the meet and the national championship for the second straight year.
Before the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship, Hasay was kind enough to come on our radio show. We talked about plenty of topics and found out some interesting things about Hasay in this candid conversation. She told us what school she would of likely attended if she didn’t become a Duck, how many miles she runs per week, what she does before and after runs, and why running isn’t the most important part of her training. Listen and enjoy! To read about when she joined our running group for a stroll click here.

Check out Jordan’s historic race at the 2008 Olympic Trials! This is where she set the national high school record and advanced to the finals of the 1,500 meter race at just 16! After setting the record, the crowd started chanting, “Come to Oregon, Come to Oregon”. A pretty nice recruiting tool for the Ducks!
