Jeter retires from track and field

American sprinter Carmelita Jeter has retired from track and field. Jeter is currently listed as  the fastest woman alive with  her 100m personal best of  10.64 seconds,  second only to Florence Griffith-Joyner’s all-time world record of 10.49 seconds. At the 2012 Olympics, she took silver behind Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the 100m and bronze in the 200m behind Allyson Felix and Fraser-Pryce. 

        
She also won the 100m world title in 2011. But Jeter said her proudest accomplishment was not an individual race.

She anchored the US women’s 4x100m relay team, joining Tianna Bartoletta, Felix and Bianca Knight for gold in a world-record time of 40.82 seconds at the London Games.
