Briana Williams lived up to expectations on Saturday night when she blazed to a 7.15-second run to win a specially arranged 60m run at the Queens/Grace Jackson Invitational at the National Stadium in Kingston.

In cool, wet conditions and with a headwind of -1.1m/s Williams burned up the track to a comfortable win ahead of Sprintec’s Natasha Morrison, who crossed the finish line in 7.24s. Jodean Williams of the University of the West Indies finished third overall in 7.36.

Williams, who revealed afterwards that she has been working on her finish, was pretty satisfied with her performance that excited the small crowd that witnessed the performance.

She said she always enjoys competing in Kingston.

“There is more excitement here. The crowd is amazing. They are really happy I am here and I am happy I am here,” she said.

Williams competes next at the Millrose Games at the Armoury in New York on February 8.
