Anneisha is one of Jamaica’s brightest prospects over the 200m event. She is one of Jamaica’s most decorated junior female athletes as she copped many gold, silver and bronze medals at the Carifta games, CAC games and World Junior level. She amassed over a total of 20 medals in her junior career internationally. In 2002, she was awarded the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the 2002 CARIFTA Games. Her transition into the senior ranks wasn’t as smooth as she or anyone would have expected. After completing Holmwood Technical High, Annie went away on scholarship to a school overseas. She was plagued with many injuries and thought about quitting. Annie was encouraged by her mentor to return to Jamaica and train and so she joined the MVP track club. After successes at the MVP track club, she has now decided to embark on a different journey with her high school coach and mentor Maurice Wilson at the SprinTec Track Club.


Anneisha was on track to doing something special in 2017 but got a hamstring strain in March which slowed her season a bit. She recovered from her injury and was able to produce a new personal best, 50. 76 seconds in the 400m at the National Senior Trials, earning a spot on the Jamaica team to the IAAF World Athletics Championships in London.
