About Ryann
When Ryann Krais was just a junior in high school and placed second at the USA Junior Championships in both the heptathlon and 400m hurdles, Sports Illustrated drew comparison to Jackie Joyner-Kersee. While direct parallels between Krais and the National Track & Field Hall of Famers are yet to be drawn, Krais has become one of the nation’s top multi-event and 400m hurdle athletes, garnering top 10 national rankings in both events in 2011 from Track & Field News. Transferred from UCLA to Kansas State during her collegiate career. A high school phenom, Krais won 14 state titles in high school.
