Jenna first competed at the Commonwealth Games in 2006 in Melbourne where she won the silver medal in the women's solo event.[2] At the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India, Randall again won the silver medal in the women's solo event and teamed up with Olivia Allison to win silver in the women's duet.[2]
