Briana Williams for Carifta Games 2019

World U20 sprint double champion Briana Williams will run at the Queen’s School/Grace Jackson Invitational later this month.

Williams, Jamaica’s fastest junior sprinter of all-time, is likely to run against local-based seniors on January 25. Over the years, the likes of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Elaine Thompson ran the women’s 60m at the event.

However, the 17-year-old will have her first competition of 2020 this weekend in South Carolina.
She will line-up in the women’s 60m at the Clemson Orange and Purple Elite, set for Clemson University in South Carolina.

On February 8, Williams will face a robust field, which includes Allyson Felix, at the NYRR Millrose Games, The Armory, New York.

Williams, it seems, is preparing for the World Indoor Championships in March. However, in a social media post, she wrote “World Indoor Championships? ?”

She also promised to provide more race information after February 8.
