Kenia Sinclair is Jamaica’s most accomplished female 800m runner. Although she has never come close to winning a major international medal, she won a silver medal in the 2006 Commonwealth Games, a second tier event. Although her mantelpiece is void of that global medal, she made an impression at the highest level, having finished sixth in the 2008 Beijing Olympic final.
The multiple Jamaica national record holder with a national record of 1:57.88secs, Sinclair famously dabbles in other events, ranging from the 1500m to road racing.
The diminutive but stellar star has been bothered by health issues. In 2012, she endured serious injury that resulted in her withdrawal from the London Olympic Games. In 2013, she was primed for a major breakthrough but suffered back and neck spasms from a car accident, which forced her to miss the Jamaica National Trials for the Moscow World Championships. She was not selected for the Games.
