Phylicia GeorgePhylicia George had her Olympic dream sparked by watching the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games. After spending four years at the University of Connecticut, she had her breakthrough year in 2011 when she broke the 13-second barrier for the first time in the 100m hurdles. She finished second at the Canadian Championships, qualifying her for the IAAF World Championships where she made the final. At the 2012 Canadian Championships, she won the 100m and finished second in the 100m hurdles, qualifying her for the London Olympic Games in two events, although she ultimately decided to just focus on the hurdles. She finished sixth with a personal best time of 12.65 seconds. George also competed at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
