Jody Henry’s family escaped the violence of her birthplace Durban in 1995, moving to Perth to call Australia home.
What was South Africa’s loss became Australia’s gain.
Henry began as a short-sprint specialist, before being called upon to help Australia’s 4x400m relay team qualify for the 2009 World Championships.
After just four runs over the one-lap, Henry helped book the team’s berth at Berlin.
The distance stuck and a year later Henry claimed the National Title in both the 400m and the 200m.
Later in 2010, Henry went on to represent Australia at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.
