Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson becomes first black woman to win a world swimming title

Alia Atkinson, who says she hopes to become a role model,
makes history with triumph in world record time in the
100m breaststroke
Alia Atkinson became the first black woman to win a world
swimming title when she triumphed in the 100m
breaststroke at the world short-course championships in
Doha on Saturday as more records tumbled.
Jamaican Atkinson, 25, claimed the title and equalled Ruta
Meilutyte’s world record of 1min 02.36sec in the process –
although under governing body FINA rules this still equates
to a new record.
Congratulations from the Laru004’s team
