How Does Carmelita Jeter, Fastest Woman Alive, Slow Down?

Carmelita Jeter earned the title Fastest Woman Alive in 2009 with her 100-meter dash time, which is second only to the late Florence Griffith-Joyner's world record.

On this episode of In Her World, Carmelita reflects on her greatest losses, both professional and personal, and gives us an inside look at what her life is like when she's not competing. Watch to find out what drives Carmelita to succeed and why her lifelong love for food and cooking keeps her grounded and connected to the people she loves — despite the pressure of life as a world-class athlete.
