Marton threw 19.33, taking the lead by two centimers! Valerie Adams responded, with an 18.31 meters. Now it was down to Michelle Carter, the US champion. Michelle Carter put herself into that tough place that only athletes know and found the strength, and focus to put the shot put over 20.21 meters, a new American record, and a winning throw.
