About Geena
Gall became the pride of her hometown of Grand Blanc, Mich. as she qualified for the 2012 Olympic Games and advanced to the semi-finals of the 800m. Her hometown hosted viewing parties for her races at the local McDonalds and she was welcomed home with proclamations and parties. While at Michigan, Gall was a two-time NCAA Outdoor 800m champion, and qualified for the 2009 World Championships following her senior year. In high school she was the national indoor 800-meter champ twice and the outdoor 800 champion once. Gall credits her older brother as a role model and grew up racing him. Played basketball as a point guard during high school. Fiancé Jason was a wrestler at Oregon State University.
