A three-time Olympic shot putter, Michelle Carter won a gold medal at the 2016

Rio Olympics on her final throw of 20.63 meters, an American record. While a

member of UT’s Track & Field team, Carter earned the nickname Shot Diva for

her confident demeanor and glamorous look. That duality has become her

personal brand. Also a certified makeup artist, Carter believes female athletes

can compete in sports and feel sure of their beauty at the same time, a message

she brings to the You Throw Girl Sports Confidence Camp, a program she

launched in 2017 for female athletes in sixth-12th grades.

She was Honored in 2018 as one of the “Outstanding Young Texas Exes”.
