The 33-year-old, who competes over 60 metres at the British Athletics Glasgow International Match today, was in the USA 4x100m relay team which at the London Olympics broke the 27-year-old East German world record.

"I believe all records are touchable," said Jeter. "It's just the timing, the right people, getting the stick around, all of those things come into the equation.

She competes for a United States team today as they take on Great Britain, Russia and Germany and a Commonwealth select at the Emirates Arena.
