Jamaica’s champion swimmer Alia Atkinson secured her 11th consecutive 50-metre breaststroke victory  at  the second International Swimming League (ISL) in Budapest, Hungary on Sunday.

Atkinson, now representing the Melanie Marshall-coached London Roar, not only executed a fine race to earn 10 valuable points for her new team, but also ensured that her unbeaten run at the ISL remained intact.

Atkinson’s time on Sunday was faster than all three of her winning times from three starts last season. Her previous wins at this ISL meet came in 29.31 in the United States, 29.27 in Budapest and 29.32 in London.
