About Sharon
Originally focused on the high jump, Day has transitioned into being one of the country’s top heptathletes, and in 2011 won her first USA Outdoor title in the hep. She made the Olympic team in the high jump in 2008 and moved to the heptathlon roster in 2012. The 2013 season saw Day capture yet another USA Outdoor title to go along with her second USA Indoor title. At the 2014 USA Indoor Championships, Day set a new American record (4805) en route to her third consecutive women’s pentathlon title. Day won her first collegiate high jump crown with a school-record performance at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Sacramento. In 2005 she suffered fractured metatarsals that forced her to redshirt the 2006 season. She cleared the same height as the silver medalist at the 2004 World Junior Championships, but because she had more misses, Day settled for bronze. She also played the forward position in soccer for Cal Poly and was named 2003 Big West Conference Freshman of the Year.
