Shafter's Anna Jelmini joins "sports stars" at Gatorade Awards

Shafter shot put and discus throwing star Anna Jelmini was among six girls vying for the prestigous Gatorade National Athlete of the Year Award at a ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Despite her numerous records and titles, Jelmini did not bring home the award. That honor went to Indiana basketball player Skyler Diggins.

Jelmini's family joined her at the awards luncheon and said the entire experience was "unbelievable."

Presenting the awards were Lions quarterback and the #1 pick in this year's NFL draft Matthew Stafford, NBA star Kevin Durant, international soccer sensation Landon Donovan, softball standout Jessica Mendoza, and Jelmini's personal favorite; beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor.

After the Gatorade Awards Luncheon, Jelmini walked the red carpet and attended the ESPY awards.
