    Fantastic, Jessica! We can now boast that Bermuda has the 4th fastest 100M racer in the world, above nations with millions in their populations. The minutest fraction of seconds on time for 3rd place still puts you on the podium for worldwide respect and recognition. Well done, Bermuda Girl! Congratulations to you and your family.
