Personal information
Born (1964-04-09) 9 April 1964

Juliet Cuthbert (born on 9 April 1964, in Saint Thomas, Jamaica) is a Jamaican athlete who competed mainly in the sprints (100 and 200 metres).

Cuthbert attended Morant Bay High School and later Olney High School in Philadelphia and the University of Texas in Austin, Texas.


Cuthbert competed for her native country of Jamaica in the 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona, Spain, in both the 100 meter sprint and the 200 meter sprint in which she won the silver medals in both competitions, finishing behind the Americans Gail Devers and Gwen Torrence respectively. After running a good second leg in the 4 x 100 meter sprint relay final, Cuthbert injured a muscle in her leg - before she competed in the second chance and dropped out of the race. This was a disappointing finish to the Summer Olympic Games for her and the other women of the Jamaican relay team. In 1992, Cuthbert was also voted as the Jamaican "Sportswoman of the Year".

Four years later at the Atlanta Olympic Games of 1996, Cuthbert helped the Jamaican 4 x 100 meter sprint relay team along with Michelle Freeman, Nikole Mitchell, and Merlene Ottey finish in third place and win the bronze medal.

With the Jamaican sprint relay team, Cuthbert also won a gold medal (1991) and two silver medals (1995, 1997) at World Championships in Athletics (actually, track and field) .
