Briana Williams lit up Jamaica’s CARIFTA trials on Saturday’s second day without having to do too much. 

Williams, who had eased to 11.57 seconds to win her Under-20 100-metre heat on Friday, had even less to do on Saturday inside the National Stadium, as she barely got out of first gear to win the final in 11.67.

Williams, without the threat of Edwin Allen High School standout, Kevona Davis in the race, was an easy winner, finishing ahead of the University of Technology’s Kemba Nelson, who stopped the clock at 11.87.

Holmwood Technical’s Sashieka Steele was third in 11.98 seconds.

In the boys’ under-20 event, Jamaica College’s Ryiem Robertson’s 10.38 seconds was quickest, while Calabar High School’s Oblique Seville was second in 10.49. Robertson’s teammate, Michali Everett was third in 10.52 seconds.

In the girls Under-17 event, Carleta Bernard of Mount Alvernia was fastest, winning the event in 12.25 seconds, ahead of St Mary High School’s Glacian Loutin, 12.34 seconds, and Immaculate Conception’s Onanda Lowe, 12.43.

In the boys under-17 100 metre, Kingston College’s Adrian Kerr was first through the tape in 10.93 seconds, while teammate Nkrumie Bouwahjgie was second in 10.94. Jamaica College’s Christopher Scott was third in 11.03.

  • PSG president Al-Khelaifi denies alleged corruption relating to World Athletics Championship PSG president Al-Khelaifi denies alleged corruption relating to World Athletics Championship

    Nasser Al-Khelaifi's lawyer has denied an allegation of corruption against his client relating to the hosting rights for the World Athletics Championships.

    According to reports in France, the Paris Saint-Germain president is accused of validating an illicit payment of €3.1million to help Doha's bid to stage the finals in 2017.

    However, his lawyer, Francis Szpiner, has described the allegations as "totally inaccurate".

    "Nasser Al-Khelaifi's name does not appear on any of the documents in the file," Szpiner told Le Parisien in reference to a case compiled by investigating judge Renaud Van Ruymbeke in Paris.

    "It should be noted that Nasser Al-Khelaifi's initial hearing was only the result of a regrettable confusion by the investigating magistrate," Szpiner added, with Al-Khelaifi having voluntarily appeared before a judicial inquiry investigating the case in March.

    "Nasser Al-Khelaifi has never been operationally involved in Doha's bid for the World Athletics Championships."

    Qatar was unsuccessful in bids for the 2017 event and the 2020 Olympics but won the right to host the 2019 World Athletics Championships, which are due to take place between September 28 and October 6.
