At the World Short Course Championships held in Shanghai in 2006, Barratt won the gold medal in women's 4x200m freestyle relay and an individual silver medal in the 400m freestyle. In 2007, she broke the oldest record in swimming for Australian women when she broke Tracey Wickham's 29 year old record in the 400m freestyle. Barratt will be competing in the 2008 Olympic Games over 200m and 400m freestyle. She was also part of the Women's 4 x 200m Freestyle Relay team, winning gold in the final, and breaking the now-previous world record by a full six seconds. She swam the second 200m after good friend Stephanie Rice, and before Kylie Palmer and Linda MacKenzie.
