As one of the more decorated female athletes, she is currently the fastest living woman in the world, after finishing with a time of 10.64 seconds in the 100m at the 2009 Shanghai Golden Grand Prix. Jeter, known for her strong physique and muscular build, most notably won the gold medal in the 4x100 relay at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
