New national record for Atkinson

Jamaican swim star Alia Atkinson set a new national record for Jamaica in the women’s 100m breaststroke semifinals, at the FINA/Airweave Swimming World Cup in Dubai this past weekend. Atkinson took the event in 1 minute 05.93 seconds.

That time bettered the 1:06.59 national record that Atkinson set at the 2015 Pan American Games just over two weeks ago where she took home the silver.

Second and third place went to Molly Hannis of the United States and Viktoria Gunes of Turkey in 1:06:60 and 1:06:96 respectively.
