About Carmelita
In 2012, Jeter won three Olympic medals and found herself in one of the most memorable images of the 2012 games as she pointed to the clock while crossing the finishline of the world record setting 4x100m relay. After winning her first World Championships medal in 2007 (bronze), Jeter said she looked at it every morning and night to help give her motivation. Apparently it worked – Jeter came home from the 2011 World Championships with three medals. Jeter defended her 2010 100m Diamond League title in 2011 and added another by doubling in the 200m. Jeter came onto the scene in 2007 setting a then personal record in the 100m of 11.05 at the adidas Track Classic and then went on to qualify for her first World Outdoor Championships roster for Team USA. She has since gone on to become the second-fastest woman in history, behind only Florence Griffith-Joyner. Prior to 2007, Jeter was plagued with injuries from 2003-2005. Jeter is the first-ever U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier and Olympian to come from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
