HUFFINGTON POST reports MICHELLE CARTER said;
“I’m in a sport where people don’t look at us like women, they don’t look at us like being girls, or feminine. But I’ve been girly all my life and so I couldn’t separate... between the sport and being a woman. I love hair, I love make up, I love fashion and I love throwing the shot put.. One of my sayings is: look good, feel good, do good,” she said. “If you are feeling good, you look good, you are confident about yourself, you are going to go out there and you will rock itIt combines two things that are part of me, the shot put and being a Diva. I love all these things: make up, hair, fashion, and just embracing my . femininity, and I put it together.:The road to Olympic Gold has not always been smooth for MICHELLE. At the BEIJING 2008 OLYMPICS, she placed 15th, and; at LONDON 2012, she placed 5th.
