Hanna Green competes in the opening round of the 800 meter during the 2019 USATF Outdoor Championships at Drake Stadium on July 25, 2019 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Hanna Green continued her preparation for the world championships in Doha, Qatar on Saturday by winning the women’s 800-meter dash at the IAAF Diamond League event in Paris.

Green, a Latrobe native and Virginia Tech graduate, beat Jamaica’s Natoya Goule for her first Diamond League victory. Her time was 1 minute, 58.59 seconds. The win also earned her a spot in the Diamond League final.

She finished as the runner-up at the national championships last month and will represent the U.S. at the world championships. Her time at the nationals was 1:58.39.

Green graduated from Latrobe in 2013 as one of the top 400-meter runners in the state.

When she graduated from Virginia Tech, she was an elite NCAA Division I 800-meter runner.

Instead of retiring from running, Green decided she wanted to continue to run and train, so she moved to Oregon.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
