"Bipartite patella (a childhood condition of the knees) that caused a whole mess of issues. Knee arthroscopic (right knee) surgery to clean out floating cartilage in the spring of 2008 (not a good idea before the Olympics). During 2015, struggled with lower back and hamstring pain." (Athlete, Oct 2017)

Reason: Father competed in athletics in Jamaica
Ambition: “Continue at a high level until my body gives out or they get so sick of me that they shut the gates to the track in my face. For the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, I would like to put up a good international championships debut in the heptathlon, and finish the 800m without getting sick in front of the crowd. (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Memorable: “Athens 2004 Olympic Games, making the final in my first Olympic appearance; Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games where I broke up the predicted Jamaican sweep in the hurdles; 2001 and 2003, the honour of competing in several events at the Big West Conference Championships, helping my squad win team titles; in 2013, at the ripe old age of 33, making the IAAF World Championship final.? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Hero: Anyone who is brave enough to pursue the things they are passionate about and do so with integrity, honesty, fairness, and a bit of flair. (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Influence: Father and brother. (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ritual: Watches funny videos to distract her from thinking about the race. (, Oct 2017) Two claps before getting in the blocks. (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Additional information

Gold Coast 2018 her fifth Commonwealth Games. At previous four, competed in 100m hurdles for a total of three medals: silver at Melbourne 2006 and Delhi 2010, bronze at Glasgow 2014. (, Oct 2017)

"I've more or less always trained as a heptathlete. I love doing multiple events, learning new technical aspects and just being on the track. For the last years of my career, I want to do what I want and enjoy it. And apparently that means adding six more events and all the beautiful and insane preparation that goes along with it." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
