It was her goal to make 2004 her most successful year, and she may have achieved just that. She started the year with a bronze medal at the 2004 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Budapest, Hungary running a personal best behind Russia's Natalya Nazarova and Olesya Krasnomovets . In July 2004, at the Rome meeting of the IAAF Golden League, Tonique broke Mexican world champion Ana Guevara's 23 race winning streak in the 400 meter race.
Then at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece she beat Guevara again. In a head to head final straight, she proved to be more powerful than the Mexican runner who had been hampered with injuries and trained only on a limited basis prior to the games.
She is married to fellow Bahamian Track and Field athlete Dennis Darling .
