About Emma
Coburn continued the Colorado Buff line of steeplechasers to excel on the national and international stage. In 2011, Coburn became the second CU athlete to win the women’s USATF steeple title while still in college. Following in the footsteps of her former teammate Jenny Simpson, Coburn bested the field of professional runners to win her first national title in 9:44.11. In 2012, Coburn took a redshirt year to focus her attention on the Olympic Trials, and it paid off as she won the Trials to secure her spot on the London team where she finished in the top-ten of the Olympic finals. In 2013 Coburn secured her second NCAA Outdoor title. She successfully defended her USATF Outdoor title in 2015 to qualify for IAAF World Championships, where she finished among the top five in Beijing. A lifelong Colorado resident, Coburn has volunteered with Living Journeys Cancer Foundation and the Mountain Adventure Kid’s Camp while in high school.
