Jeanette Kwakye


  • Date of Birth 20/03/1983


In a career blighted by injuries, Jeanette Kwakye was a three-time British champion over 100m in 2007, 2008 and 2011.

She competed at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, finishing sixth in the individual 100m with a time of 11.14 – a personal best – and was unlucky to miss out on a medal in the 4x100m relay when the British team failed to finish due to a mix-up in the final changeover.

After recovering from Achilles tendon and knee injuries, and missing the 2010 athletics season entirely, Kwakye failed to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics and retired in 2014.
