Jamaican swimmer Alia Atkinson bounced back from a dispointing Rio 2016 Olympic Games, by tying the world record in the short course 100 -meter breaststroke at the FINA World Cup in France.
Atkinson swam a time of 1:02.36, it marks the second time she’s broken or matched the world record in that event.
The 27 year-old took home the silver medal in the woman’s 200 meter Individual Medley and the 50 meter backstroke. She also broke a national world record for forth place in the 50 meter Butterfly.
Atkinson will head to the second leg of the FINA World Cup Series in Berlin, Germany later this week.
