THE 2011 Sports Personality of the Year Jasmine Rafiq will represent Australia at the US Open Karate Championship in April.

The former Natabua High School student, who holds dual citizenship, is studying at the University of Sydney.

She was selected in the Australia team after impressing at the Australian Open Championship and the Australian Schools/University Championship last year.

The 19-year-old won the gold medal in the women's open kata event at the Australian Schools/University Championship and the silver medal in the Under-21 female kata event at the Australian Open Championship.

Prior to her departure last year, Rafiq represented Fiji on many occasions. She was one of the stars at the 2012 Oceania Championship in Australia collecting two gold medals and a bronze.

The USA Open Karate Championship will be held at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas from April 16 to April 20.
