The diminutive Williams, the 100 champ at the 2002 BIG EAST meet and the USATF Junior National Championships, was the fastest out of the blocks and the fastest at the finish line, which she crossed in a new personal best of 11.33 seconds.
"I am very excited about what I have done today," Williams said. "This was
my last race of the season and I am very excited to finish on such a great
note. I won the World Junior championships gold and set a new personal best.
What else could I ask for?"
An excellent couple of first strides helped put Williams in front by the
50-meter mark, despite a challenge from Jamaican local favourite Simon
Facey, who eventually clocked a new personal best of 11.43.
"It was good, the atmosphere was great," Williams said. "All the competitors
were fast and this certainly gave me an extra boost."
Williams also is slated to compete later this week as part of the US's
4x100-meter relay team at the Championships.
