Alia Atkinson won yet another gold medal for Jamaica on Saturday  at the FINA World Cup in Bejing, China.

The 28 year old double World Record Holder used her experience to finish the 200 M Breaststroke in 2:19.58 seconds ahead of the fast closing 17 year old Japanese champion Runa Imai who turned in a time of 2:19.77. 

She ends her campaign in Beijing with two gold medals having won the 50 meter Breaststroke a day earlier.

 Atkinson’s consistent delivery of superb performances in the Breaststroke on the World Cup circuit continues to bring fame and honor to Jamaica enhancing the island’s image.

Television reporters are bemused that such a small island can produce such a world class swimmer.

The Series continues in Tokyo, Japan today (Nov 14) where she will be welcomed as the current World Record Holder and finishes in Singapore on Nov. 19th.
