EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Jillian Camerena-Williams became a repeat Olympian by winning the women's shot put Friday at the U.S. track trials.

Camerena-Williams' best of 62 feet, 10 1/2 inches, put her in front of Michelle Carter at 60-11 1/4 and Tia Brooks at 60-2, who won the other two spots on the U.S. team for the London Games.

Camerena-Williams, the American record holder, took the bronze in the event at last year's world championships.
