Congratulations to 25-year-old Jamaican Alia Atkinson who became the first Black woman to win a world swimming title at the world short-course championships in Doha, Qatar. She says she wants to encourage greater involvement of different communities in swimming.

She said “Hopefully my face will come out, there will be more popularity especially in Jamaica and the Caribbean and we’ll see more of a rise and hopefully in the future we will see a push (for more competitive swimmers).”‪

The Jamaican swimmer now holds the world record in the 100m breaststroke.
