Alia Atkinson Earns 6th GOLD Medal at Swimming World Cup 2017
Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson has increased her gold medal tally at the 2017 FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup to 6.
On Day 1 (Saturday – September 30) of the Hong Kong leg of the series, the swimming sensation clocked 1:04.09 in the women’s 100m breaststroke to finish first ahead of Rikke Pedersen of Denmark and Kierra Smith of Canada.
She is slated to compete in the women’s 50m and 200m Breaststroke on Sunday (October 1).
In 2014, Atkinson became the first black woman to win a world swimming title after finishing first in the 100-metre breaststroke at the 2014 Short Course World Championships in Doha (equalling the record set by Rūta Meilutytė in 2013).
