Girls #2IAAF Score: 1,111 points
It's really hard to know where to start with Kym Carter, so let's start with the fact that her 6'2.25" state record high jump was also the U.S. high school national record at the time it was set.
But the high jump wasn't even Kym Carter's best event. Her best event was, well, all the events together.
She was a multi-eventer, a heptathlete outdoors and a pentathlete indoors. And she was one of the best in the world for nearly a decade.
She would twice world-rank in the top-10 in the heptathlon and would rank in the U.S. top-10 eight times.
She made the 1992 U.S. Olympic team in the heptathlon, finishing 11th.
She made seven U.S. World Championships teams in the heptathlon outdoors or the pentathlon indoors - 1987, 1991, 1993 Indoor, 1993, 1995 Indoor, 1997 Indoor, and 1997.
She won two World Championships medals - silver in the pentathlon at the 1995 World Indoor Championships, and bronze in the same event at the 1997 World Indoor Championships.
