Valarie Allman is an American track and field athlete who throws the discus. Valarie recently graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor of Science in Product Design, an interdisciplinary major consisting of art-history, design, and mechanical engineering. During her time as a Cardinal, she was a seven-time All-American, twice Pac-12 discus champion and team captain. Valarie has represented the United States six times where she earned silver medals at the World Junior Championships in Eugene, OR in 2014 and the World University Games in Taipei, Taiwan in 2017. Most recently she earned Team USA a bronze medal at the inaugural Athletics World Cup in London.
Valarie won the 2018 US National Championship in the women’s discus - she threw the discus 208 feet, 6 inches (63.55m) to win by 8 feet. The latter toss was the longest by an American last year. She recently moved to Austin, TX to continue her training under the guidance of Zebulon Sion. At her first meet in the 2019 season, Valarie tossed the discus 67.15m, a personal best, an NYAC Club record and the fifth-longest toss ever by an American woman. The latter toss also satisfied the 2019 World Championship and 2020 Olympic standards for the women’s discus.
