Achieng Ajulu-Bushell represented Kenya in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
An incredible swimmer, she has got great poise and presence for a 15-year-old. She has broken several records including:
1. Swimming the 50m breaststroke in 32.22 in the 2008 FINA World Championships.
2. Swimming in the 50 metres breaststroke, the talented Achieng swam in 32.64 to set a new meet record at the 2008 Africa Senior Swimming Championship
3. She set more than 30 Kenyan records, including Open standards over 50, 100 and 200m freestyle as well as 50m breaststroke and butterfly at various South African meets in 2006 at the age of 12.
There are more records and she is young, so I am sure she will be providing lots of fodder for great stories on remarkable acheivements in the swimming arena. The daughter of Professor Rok Ajulu, and step-daughter of the new South African Minister of Defence, Ms. Lindiwe Sisulu, she is making her own history and promises to be a name that will be repeated in awe in swimming circles around the world!
