About Natasha
In 2013 Hastings finally captured a long-awaited USA Outdoor championship, cruising past the line with a time of 49.94 to earn her place atop the podium. Hastings has been a fixture of Team USA's 4x400m relay, with six international relay medals to her name. In 2012 she added an individual world medal to her trophy case with a bronze medal at the 2012 World Indoor Championships. Hastings (52.57) had third-leg duty in the women’s 4x400m at the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships where Team USA won their first-ever gold in the women's 4x400m relay at a World Indoor Championships in American record fashion, finishing in 3:27.34. At the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials, Hastings made her first Olympic Team with her fifth place finish in the women’s 400m (51.13), which qualified her for the 4x400 relay pool. As a junior at the University of South Carolina in 2007, Hastings established herself one of the country’s best 400m runners. Following a dominant collegiate season in which she won national titles indoors and outdoors, Hastings finished as the USA Outdoor runner-up. Her personal-best time of 49.84 was the fastest ever run by a collegian. She chose to forgo her final year of NCAA eligibility.
