2008 Hall of Fame Inductee

Tiffany Lott Hogan is someone who is always looking for the next step. Whether from high school to college, nationals to internationals, injury to recovery, or out of shape to in, Hogan always had to get one level higher.

As an 11-year-old, Hogan already knew she wanted to go to the Olympics. She began her journey to Athens by learning and competing in a variety of field events, which quickly became her passion. Hours were spent at practice and family vacations were spent at track meets.

High school brought recognition for her efforts, even with a traumatizing hurdle crash her freshman year. Hogan overcame her fears and won seven state titles, was a three-time winner of the heptathlon at the Great Southwest track meet and three-time All-American, competed in the USA Jr. National track meet three times and won the 100m hurdles and javelin at the National Junior Olympic track meet.

Although recruited by LSU, Hogan knew BYU was the place for her post high school training. Her first two years looked promising until she suffered a knee injury (ACL). Not one to quit, Hogan worked toward recovery and had the best year of her career, including setting the world record in the 55m hurdles.

In spite of a pulled hamstring her senior year, Hogan still managed to have a phenomenal career at BYU. She set school and collegiate records, was a 10-time All-American, NCAA National Champion in the 55m hurdles, two-time NCAA Champion in heptathlon, National Champion in heptathlon at USA Junior Championships, and competed in the World Junior Championships for the heptathlon and World University Games for the Javelin.

Off the field, Hogan was presented with numerous awards recognizing her dedication and work ethic, including Female Athlete of the Year by Track & Field Magazine, the Dale Rex Memorial Award at BYU, Female Athlete of the Year (Utah) by the Girl and Women in Sports Foundation and Collegiate Female Athlete of the Year (Utah) by the Multiple Sclorosis Society.

Graduating from BYU, she suffered the emotional letdown of barely missing the 2000 Olympic team and the difficulty of getting back into shape while starting a family. After losing a brother right before the 2004 Olympic Trials, Hogan almost walked away and no one would have blamed her. She had already won two USA Indoor National titles, set and reset world records for the pentathlon, was named the Pan American Champion in the heptathlon and competed and placed in numerous other national competitions.

But then she decided she wanted to teach her children to finish what they started and that's exactly what she did.

She went on to compete in Athens where she placed 20th in the heptathlon and had the experience of a lifetime. She was later inducted into the Utah Summer Games Hall of Honor and tonight will be honored at BYU.
