World U20 champion Briana Williams will not be racing at the Racers Adidas Grand Prix on Saturday, June 8, contrary to what was announced at the launch of the meet on Thursday.

Coming off another impressive campaign at the 2019 Carifta Games in the Cayman Islands last weekend, Briana Williams will arrive at Jamaica’s National Championships in June ready up the ante.

For the second year running, Jamaica’s Briana Williams won the coveted Austin Sealy Award at the Carifta Games that concluded at the Truman Bodden Stadium in the Cayman Islands on Sunday.

The 2018 Austin Sealy Award winner, Briana Williams, is likely to be withdrawn from the 200m over a  gaffe in scheduling at the 2019 Carifta Games being hosted by the Cayman Islands from April 20-23.

When Briana Williams steps onto the track at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex at the 48th renewal of the Carifta Games later this month, it will be the first of two dress rehearsals for the Jamaican National Championships two months later.

Claiming that Briana Williams is currently only operating at about 60 per cent of capacity, Coach Ato Boldon said she was not satisfied with her winning time in the 60m dash at the New Balance Indoor Nationals at the Armory in New York last weekend.

Briana Williams has pulled out of this weekend’s Bob Hayes Classic in Jacksonville, Florida, just days after she won the 60m dash in a personal best 7.28 seconds at the New Balance Indoor Nationals on Sunday.

An already fast Briana Williams has her coach Ato Boldon thinking 2019 could be another special year for the young sprinter following her impressive 200m run at the John Battle III All-Star Invitational in Hallandale, Florida on Saturday.

Naomi Osaka walked away with the big prize at the 2019 Laureus Sports Awards in Monaco on Monday, but Jamaica’s Briana Williams and her coach Ato Boldon came away richer for the experience.

In recognition of her outstanding break-out season last year, Jamaica’s fast-emerging track star Briana Williams has been nominated for the prestigious 2019 Laureus World Sports Award for Breakthrough of the Year.

She didn’t win but Jamaica’s Briana Williams had a great time in Monte Carlo at the IAAF Athletics Awards Gala and it could serve as motivation for a return when perhaps, a trophy could be waiting.

IAAF World U20 100 and 200m champion Briana Williams said winning the 2018 North America Central America and Caribbean (NACAC) Junior Female Athlete of Year Award has given her the confidence to be even better in the coming season.

Trinidad and Tobago track and field legend turned noted pundit Ato Boldon has rejected suggestions Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt could ruin his legacy with a foray into the sport of football.
