  • Career Highlights: America's leading female shot put athlete, Camarena-Williams has an outside chance at a gold medal and is a strong contender for a podium finish in London. Starting with the Pan American junior championships in 1999 and 2001, Camarena-Williams has struggled to make an impact on the international stage but has dominated at home, winning the USA outdoor championships in 2006, 2010 and 2012 and picking up gold eight times at the USA indoor championships. The American indoor and outdoor record holder won her first and only major international medal at the 2011 world championships with a bronze. Camarena-Williams won the U.S. trials and will fancy her chances of medaling in London after finishing 12th at the 2008 Beijing Games. Belarus' Nadzeya Ostapchuk and New Zealand's Valerie Adams are the strongest shot put athletes going into the Games, and the biggest threats to Camarena-Williams' medal chances.
