Jennifer Brown was recruited into track and field by a high school gym teacher. She competed in the hammer throw but in 2006 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and her symptoms resulted in hospitalization. She was inspired to return to throwing as a way to build strength and fitness.
It was a great decision. Brown heads to Rio as a medal contender after a successful 2015 season which included gold in shot put and silver in discus at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games and fourth in discus at the IPC 2015 World Championships.
