Colin Dunbar begins his fourth season as an assistant throws coach at Long Beach State.
Dunbar was a member of the 49er track & field team from 2009-11, and is one of the most decorated throwers in school history. He helped lead the men’s squad to the 2011 Big West championship by personally accounting for 29 points. Dunbar claimed the conference title in the hammer and discus, while he also finished third in the shot put and sixth in the javelin. He went on to earn All-America honors in both the hammer and discus. In addition, Dunbar won the weight throw at the 2011 MPSF Indoor Championships.
Dunbar was named the 2011 USTFCCCA West Region Men’s Field Athlete of the Year, making him an automatic candidate for the National Athlete of the Year award. He was also the Big West Men’s Field Athlete of the Year as a senior.
Dunbar has continued to succeed in his post-collegiate career as he won a silver medal as a member of Team USA at the 2015 NACAC Senior Area Championships in Costa Rica. He qualified for the meet with a sixth-place finish at the U.S. Outdoor Championships. Dunbar also medaled at the indoor (Weight Throw, 3rd) and outdoor (Hammer, 6th) national championships in 2013. In addition, he took fifth in the weight throw at the 2015 USA Indoor Championships.
Dunbar graduated from Long Beach State in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and a minor in entrepreneurship.
