About Danielle
Carruthers knows all too well how to clear hurdles. She gained success in the mid-2000s highlighted by a pair of Indoor Championships, but she was then unable to reach the podium for three years. That changed in 2011 when Carruthers not only took second place at the USA Outdoors, but took second at the World Championships and earned a personal best as well. While Carruthers ended her collegiate career at Indiana University with a collegiate indoor record and multiple national and conference medals, things didn’t start that way. Carruthers was forced to sit out her freshman year after completely tearing her ACL during hurdle drills. Carruthers grew up in Paducah as the daughter of a young single mother. Carruthers has described her youth as a tough time where she was hanging out with the wrong crowd and didn’t see a lot of opportunities in her future. That changed when the coach from Tilghman High School recruited Carruthers to join the track team and provided her with a pair of spikes. That year Carruthers won the indoor state champ and began to change her life making new friends and even got involved in band where she made first chair in the flute.
