Hurd made her first Olympic Team and broke the American record in winning in the 2004 Olympic Trials with a mark of 14.45m/47-05.00…after years as one of the top Americans, Hurd had a breakthrough at the 2001 World Indoor Championships, winning the bronze for her first World Champs medal…Hurd was a late addition to the meet…she lacked the qualifying standard but the IAAF, seeking to fill out the field, added her to the meet…name is pronounced ‘tee-OHM-bay’...got started in track by running in city recreation programs in Seattle…as a high school sophomore, she moved to Virginia, where her world cultures teacher doubled as the track coach…he encouraged her to try track on the basis of her long legs, and she’s been triple jumping ever since...earned a degree in hotel/restaurant management from James Madison, and got her MBA from Howard University...says her biggest fan is her father, Clifford Holland, a former distance runner.
