Track and field consists of both track and field events. Simple right? Well, most athletes in the sport don't overlap their events between track and field, specializing in just one side of the sport.
However, there are a few who run in events on the track and participate in field events, especially on the women's side. One can say they put the "track and field" into track and field.
Here are some of the best athletes at both track and field events in women's track and field.
All statistics as of May 1
Shayla Broughton | Mississippi State
Mississippi State's Shayla Broughton is one of the nation's top long jumpers, owning the 12th-furthest jump in the nation. She also ran a 13.29 in the 100-meter hurdles. Throw in Broughton's performance in the heptathlon, which includes a win at the Joe Walker Invitational, and you have an extremely well-rounded athlete.
