Chantae is throwing a javelin at the 2021 Olympic trials at Hayward field.
My name is Chantae McMillan. I'm a 2012 Olympian who competed in the heptathlon.  I am now focused on making the 2024 Olympic team solely in javelin. 

I have been a track and field athlete for 22 years. After graduating in 2006 from Rolla High School in Missouri, I went on to compete collegiately at the University of Nebraska. This is where I started competing in the heptathlon. The heptathlon is 7 events that are over a 2 day period. Day 1 consists of the 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, and the 200m dash. While day 2 has the long jump, javelin, and the 800m run. After progressively getting better each year, I decided to continue my career as a professional track and field athlete. 


In 2011, right after graduating college, I blew out my patellar-tendon while competing in the high jump. This injury put me in rehab for 6 months, where I truly learned what being disciplined to reach a goal looked like. In the Summer of 2012, 9 months after the injury, I made the hardest team to make, the United States Olympic team. 


After training 10 years as a heptathlete, I decided to solely focus on javelin. I have big goals of making the Olympic team in javelin. I know this is no small task and it will be hard, but that is more the reason why I have decided to train for javelin. 

My hometown is Rolla, Missouri. I used to train in Dayton, Ohio, but I will be training in Washington D.C. area this year.  


I am married to my amazing husband, Devon Langhorst, who is in the US Army, stationed at Fort Belvoir as a helicopter pilot. We have two sons, Otto, born in October of 2018 and Ellis born in October 2022.

My family and my training are my current priorities, but I am a lot more than listed. I thank you for coming to my website to gain a little more insight on who I am and how I am going to conquer my goals!  Let's Go!!
