ABOUT Michelle-Lee Ahye

Since competing at the 2007 IAAF World Youth Championships, Michelle-Lee Ahye has climbed to the top of the world senior ranks. She enjoyed a great breakthrough in 2014 when improving her 100m PB from 11.06 to 10.85. Also that year she was sixth over 60m at the World Indoors and second in the 100m at the Continental Cup.

In 2015, she was fifth in the 100m at the World Championships, where she helped her country to bronze medals in the 4x100m relay.

At the 2016 Rio Games, she was sixth in both the 100m and 200m, in the latter advancing her national record to 22.25 in the semi-finals.

The following year brought more great results, including a national record of 10.82 for 100m at the T&T Championships. It put her second on the world rankings for the season behind Olympic champion Elaine Thompson. At the World Championships, she qualified for her third consecutive global final, finishing sixth over 100m, before helping her country to the same position in the 4x100m relay. However, in between, she pulled out of the 200m due to illness.
