    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- Michelle Carter loves to let the tension build. Wholesale Jerseys .At the Olympics, she took it to extremes.The American shot putter waited until her last throw Friday night to knock off arguably the best woman to ever compete in the event -- two-time defending champion Valerie Adams of New Zealand.Now, Carter has a gold medal, the first by an American woman in the event and just the second medal all-time. She joins an exclusive club that, until Friday, included only Earlene Brown, who won bronze at the 1960 Games.She also joins her father, longtime NFL defensive lineman Michael Carter, as an Olympic medalist. Michael Carter won silver in the shot put at the 1984 Los Angeles Games.Its not over til its over, said Michelle Carter, who has a fashion line called Shot Diva. I knew it was a good throw, but I didnt know how far it could be.Carters throw went 20.63 meters (67 feet, 8 inches) to overtake Adams and break her own American record. Adams had the final attempt of the evening but couldnt come close to equaling the mark. Anita Marton of Hungary was third.That was a big throw, said Adams, who was going for an unprecedented third straight Olympic title in the event.

He said this doesnt compare with all those rings or even his own Olympic medal; its way better.Growing up, Michelle Carter didnt know her dad threw the shot, only that he played football.In seventh grade, Carter expressed a desire to try the shot put. At first, her dad was a little hesitant, thinking she was only trying to follow in his footsteps.She wasnt.He worked with her through a record-breaking high school career and thought his coaching days were done once she went to the University of Texas. But he was asked to help out, so he drove from Dallas to Austin -- some 340 miles roundtrip -- every two weeks to offer some guidance.Carter has blossomed into one of the worlds top throwers. She set the American outdoor record of 20.24 meters (66 feet, 5 inches) in 2013 and broke the nations indoor mark with a throw of 20.21 (66-3) to capture her world title in March.When healthy, Adams has been almost unbeatable in the event. Shes a star in New Zealand, though she might be only the second-best known of her 17 brothers and sisters outside of her country. Her youngest brother,?Steven Adams, is a center for the?Oklahoma City Thunder.It has been a tough road lately for Valerie Adams, who has had five surgeries over the past three seasons, including knee surgery this time a year ago that had her wondering whether she would be ready for the Olympics.She was but couldnt bring home a third straight Olympic title.Its a very hard thing to do and come away with, she said.
