About Shalaya
Kipp had never considered the steeplechase until her head coach asked her if she wanted to try it during her freshman year. She has a background of alpine ski racing for 10 years that she contributes to her overall athleticism and fearlessness over the barriers. She becomes the third Colorado Buffalo to compete in the Olympic steeplechase while still in college, following her teammate Jenny Simpson in 2008 and joining her 2012 Olympic teammate Emma Coburn. Kipp was already enrolled in summer classes in July of 2012, but upon making the Olympic team she joked that she would need to rearrange her schedule. She is majoring in integrated physiology and psychology at Colorado.
