EEW Magazine Faith // INTERVIEWS

Share Known as "The Shot Diva," Michelle Carter is the first U.S. Olympic woman's shot put gold medalist.

After finishing as the runner-up at the 2012 Olympic Trials, Carter was presented her silver medal by gospel artist Kirk Franklin. She completed an epic double in 2013, capturing gold at the USA Indoor and USA Outdoor Championships.

In 2015, the gifted athlete won her sixth USATF Outdoor Championship en route to winning the bronze medal at IAAF World Championships in Beijing.

Carter is the national prep record-holder in the shot put at 16.73m/54-10.75, while her father, Michael, set the still-standing national boys prep record of 81-3.5 in 1979. She was a four-time Texas 4A state champion in the shot put, also set state record in the discus.

A standout shot putter and NFL nose guard, Carter's father Michael is the only person to win an Olympic medal and Super Bowl ring in the same year. He won three Super Bowl titles with the 49ers.

She has one sister, D'Andra, who was a thrower at Texas Tech, and one brother, Michael, Jr.
