Over the past two years Jeanette has emerged as one of Britain’s brightest young female sprint talents following on from a promising rise through the junior ranks.

In 2007 at the European Indoors in Birmingham, she impressively won her semi-final in 7.17 seconds – this was the equal second fastest in the UK ever, and then narrowly missed out on a bronze medal in a photo finish decision in the final.

She made up for it a year later when she won silver at the World Indoors, breaking a 22 year old British record in the process. She took her excellent form into the summer of 2008 and became the first British woman to reach an Olympic 100m final for 24 years – she placed 6th in Beijing.

Post Beijing Olympics Jeanette unfortunately had to undergo knee surgery which meant a long period away from the track and alot of rehabilitation.

She is now back to her best and started the 2012 season with a great win at the UK indoor trials, but opted not to compete at the World Indoor Champs in Turkey and instead focus on her training and preparation for the start of the 2012 outdoor season building to the Games in July.

Her goal is to win a medal at the Olympic Games that take place just down the road from her home in East London.

Known as the Chingford Flier Jeanette grew up in East London and passes the 2012 Olympic Athletes Village everyday on her way to training at the Lee Valley Hi Pac.

Jeanette has a degree in politics and economics from Loughborough University.

When not training on the track or in the gym Jeanette enjoys going out with her friends, loves music and enjoys watching tennis.
