The Woodford Green & Essex Ladies athlete was a promising youngster but constant injuries held her back from reaching her full potential. But ever since the 2007 European Indoor Championships, Kwakye has established herself as an athlete who can always be relied on at major championships.

At the European Indoor Championships in Birmingham, Kwakye was not considered as being a true medal candidate but in the semi-finals, the Londoner blasted to a 7.17 clocking, to qualify second fastest for the final. Kwakye could not quite match that form, but the Mike Afilaka-coached athlete was fourth in 7.20.

Kwakye continued to impress, winning the 100m and 200m at the UK Championships and at the World Championships, Kwakye set a lifetime best of 11.26 in the heats, but did not progress past the second round. She made a real breakthrough at the World Indoor Championships in Valencia in 2008. Having come close to the national record at the Norwich Union Indoor Grand Prix in Birmingham, Kwakye equalled the record to 7.13 in the semi-finals in Valencia, before chasing the USA’s Angela Williams home in the final, shaving another 0.05 from the record.

After a slow start to the outdoor campaign, Kwakye had clearly peaked for the Olympic Games, as she lowered her season’s best of 11.26, to become the first British athlete since the 1984 Olympic Games to make the final. In the second round, Kwakye set a PB of 11.18, before running 11.19 in the semi-finals and finished a highly creditable sixth in the final in another lifetime best of 11.14. With 2009 and 2010 being beset with injuries she did well to return to fine form in 2011 with victories at the Aviva World Trials and a respectable sixth place at the semi-final stage in Daegu and a near-PB of 11.15.

Jeanette is a graduate of Loughborough University with a degree in Politics and Economics.
