The World governing body for swimming (FINA) has described the unassuming 28 year old Jamaican as the fastest and most consistent Breaststroker in the history of the Short Course World Cup and a single asset for Jamaica who continues to enchant us with her performances.
 
She currently holds the World Record of 28.64 seconds in this event.
