London - "Shot Diva" Michelle Carter has a good reason to be proud. She took home the bronze medal at the 2017 World Championships in London.
Lijiao Gong from China came in first place, earning the gold medal in the women's shot put with a distance of 19.94 meters, while Hungary's Anita Marton came in second place with 19.49 meters. Finally, Michelle Carter, representing Team USA, came in third, taking a bronze medal, with a throw of 19.14 meters, which she secured in her third attempt.
Last summer, at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Michelle Carter took home the gold medal for the United States of America (USA), with a throw of 20.63 meters, pulling a major upset. Carter bested New Zealand shot putter Valerie Adams, who had won the gold medal at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games respectively, leaving Adams with the silver medal in Rio de Janeiro. With that 20.63 meter throw, Carter set an American national record in the women's shot put.
