Now as a high school senior, Anna Rohrer is enjoying her healthiest and most successful year of running to date with national titles in the fall, winter, and hopefully more race glory to come over the final months of outdoor track. Her sights are set on disproving the doubters and leaving her injuries behind in high school to go onto a highly successful career in college at Notre Dame.
Anna Rohrer following the 2-time Foot Locker National cross country champion’s fast early success in the sport before her running career was derailed and nearly ended completely by a serious injury. In the fall of her junior year, after being sidelined from repeating as a national champ, doctors gave Rohrer a 60% chance of fully recovering from a surgery procedure on her two fractured feet. However, Rohrer overcame being temporarily wheelchair-bound to find her way back on the track again running faster than ever by the end of her junior year. Be inspired by the story of this incredible young distance runner from the small town of Mishawaka, Indiana.
