Jura Levy was a star in High School at Champs for Vere Technical. She finished third at the 2011 Jamaica Senior Championships and made the World Championship team that year.

The 26-year-old made it to the semi-finals and later helped Jamaica to silver in the women’s 4x100m, but has since battled injuries.
At April 2017 World Relays in Bahamas, she teamed up with Sasha Lee Forbes, Shericka Jackson and Rio Olympic sprint double champion Elaine Thompson to win Jamaica in the women’s 4x200m.
