Reclaiming Fitspo: Michelle Carter

27 years old, Carter is a record-holding American shot putter.

She is best known for winning the 2008 United States Olympic Team Trials, winning the the 2009 and 2011 National Championship, and competing for the University of Texas when she won the Collegiate National Championship in 2006.

Michelle is the daughter of Michael Carter, a former Olympian and NFL star. Michael is the the only athlete to ever win an Olympic medal and a Super Bowl ring in the same year. Both Michelle and her father hold the current National High School Record in the Shot Put, the only such father and daughter situation!
