*CORRECTION: Kearsten Peoples finished in fourth place at the U.S. Olympic Trials. A previous version of this story incorrectly identified this information.
Missouri shot-putter Kearsten Peoples did not make the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, but her mark of 17.32 meters in the Friday's finals at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore., earned her fourth* place. Only the top three finishers make the Olympic team.
Peoples, who will be a sophomore entering next year's outdoor season, will be a good candidate for the team in 2016 based on her performance this year.
