Emma Coburn (born October 19, 1990) is an American middle distance runner who specializes in the 3000 meter steeplechase.

At the 2017 World Championships in London, Coburn won the 3000 metres steeplechase with a time of 9.02.59, breaking her own American record.

This made her the first American woman to win a gold medal in the steeplechase at either the World Championships or the Olympics.

Previously, she set an American record of 9:07.63 in the 3000 meter steeplechase to win a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games.

This also made her the first American woman to win any Olympic medal in that event.

Her other achievements in the event include reaching the 2012 Olympic final (8th), and the World Championship finals in 2011 (10th) and 2015 (5th).

She also won the 2014 IAAF Continental Cup.

She is a seven-time (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018) United States National Champion.

Coburn qualified for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team in the 3000 meter steeplechase, joined in the event by her University of Colorado teammate Shalaya Kipp.

At age 21, Coburn was the youngest runner on the American team at the 2012 Olympics.

In her Olympic heat, she placed third with a time of 9:27.51, automatically qualifying for the final.
