  SOFLO’s Alia Atkinson Wins Gold, Ties World Record At FINA Short Course World Championships  
  November 21, 2014  
  In front of a cheering, capacity crowd waving Jamaican flags, Alia Atkinson made history on so many levels Saturday at the 12th FINA Short Course World Swimming Championships at Hamad Aquatic Center in Doha, Qatar. The three-time Jamaican Olympian and longtime South Florida Aquatic Club swimmer became the first Jamaican to win a gold medal and tie the world record at a major international swim meet. Atkinson, 25, out-touched reigning Olympic and defending champion Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania to win the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:02.36, also a meet record which Meilutyte had broken the day before in 1:02.43. Meilutyte, 17, has held the world record since 2012 and now shares it with Atkinson, who has now beaten the teenager three times in the last two months.
