"This is an extraordinary achievement for Alia. I know she felt personal disappointment with her performance at the Commonwealth Games, but we were proud of her silver medal. But now here she is five months later, breaking her world record. It goes to show, we must never give up. Alia continues to be an inspiration for us all."
