Michelle Carter Wins Historic Shot Put Gold
With a final, herculean hurl, Michelle Carter scored a gold medal in the women's shot put final Friday night in Rio — a first for any U.S. woman in the event.
"I knew I had more in the tank," Carter told reporters. "And to be able to go out there and put the pieces together and pull it out, I'm just really excited."
Taking advantage of that reserved energy, Carter truly saved her best for last.
