Career[edit]

At the 2011 CARIFTA Games, she won two gold medals (100 metres in 11.38s (−0.8 m/s), and 200 metres in 23.17s (0.0 m/s)) in the junior (U-20) category equalling Veronica Campbell's 200 metres games record of 22.93s (1.1 m/s) in the heats. She was consequently awarded the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the games.

Strachan won gold medals over 200 metres and 4×100 metres relay at the 2011 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.[2] Her 200 metres time of 22.70 was a new World Junior Leading and a new championship record.[3]

At the 2012 CARIFTA Games, she won three gold medals: 100 metres in wind-assisted 11.22s (4.4 m/s), 200 metres, this year improving Veronica Campbell's and her own 200 metres games record to 22.85s (−0.7 m/s), and finally, she led the Bahamas 4×100m relay team to gold in 45.02s. For the second time in the role, she was awarded the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the games.[4]
