Tide Athlete to Represent Jamaican Team

University of Alabama senior All-American Latonel Williams continues to add to his impressive track resume.

Williams finished second in the 200m at the Jamaican National Championships to earn a spot on the Jamaican national team that will compete in the World Championships.

Williams, a senior this past season at Alabama, posted a time of 20.40 in the finals of the event to claim second place. He can now add his spot on the national team to his list of accomplishments over the past year.

Williams won the 200m NCAA Mideast Regional Championship and then went on to gain All-American status in the 200m at the NCAA Championships. He also garnered All-American status in the 200m at the 2003 NCAA Indoor Championships.

Williams is no stranger to international representation with the Jamaican national team. Last summer he competed in the Commonwealth Games in England as a member of the Jamaican national 4x400m relay team.

Williams will now travel to Paris, France for the 2003 World Championships which will take place August 23-31.
