I started thinking about my blog and what I should talk about. I thought it would be good just to introduce myself to those who don't know me. Ok here we go!
My name is Michelle Carter. I throw the Shot put. Shot put? Whats that? Glad you asked! Its a medal ball that you throw as far as you can. I Glide not spin!
Yes, My dad is Micheal Carter-Is that the guy who threw the shot really really far?- Why yes, as a matter of fact it is. He threw it 81 ft. 3in. Its been the National High School Record since 1979! (yea, my Dad is getting old). He also played Professional football for 9 years with San Francisco 49ers. He went SMU and graduated in 1984. He got a silver medal in the 1984 Olympics!
