San Diego Olympian is Track & Field’s ‘multitasker,’ preparing for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Most track and field athletes focus on a single event, but that’s not the case for San Diego’s Annie Kunz. She must prepare for seven events if she hopes to join Team USA for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Kunz, 31, from North Park, is a heptathlete, competing in seven different events over two days: the 100-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 meters, long jump, javelin, and 800 meters.

Originally from Denver, Kunz moved to Southern California in 2017 and has trained at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center for the past two Olympic cycles.

She placed 6th at the 2022 Tokyo Olympics.

“Leaving Tokyo, I thought, ‘Being that close to the podium, I didn’t feel finished.’ So I decided to go for another run,” Kunz said.
