Jamaica's sprint sensation Briana Williams said she is excited about lining up against six-time Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix over 60m at the 113th NYRR Millrose Games on Saturday, February 8 at the Armoury Track & Field Centre in New York.

 It will be the first time the 17-year-old sprinter will race against the decorated American. The stacked field also includes Jamaica’s Trudy Ann Williamson, the USA’s Morolake Akinuson, Hannah Cunliffe, Teahna Daniels, Javianne Oliver, Deajah Stevens and Germany’s Tatjana Pinto.

 “I'm excited about the line-up. I’ve been looking up to Allyson ever since I started track so this is pretty awesome that I get to race against her. She has accomplished so much, especially at a young age,” said Williams who raced to a fast 7.15-second outdoor run in Kingston last month.

 She opened her 2020 season with a personal best 7.25 seconds at the Clemson University's Orange & Purple Elite Invitational on January 4,

 In contrast to Williams’ excitement about racing her idol, Coach Ato Boldon sees this as just another 60m race in William's 2020 preparation.

 "Training has been exceptional so I expect another PR from Briana this weekend. She has run against the two Olympic 100m champions on multiple occasions...she won't be overwhelmed by the spotlight."

St Lucia’s Julien Alfred said she wanted to go faster but was generally pleased with her performances at the Razorback Invitational at the Randall Tyson Track Centre at Fayetteville, Arkansas on the weekend.

A Jamaican trio of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Christania Williams and Natalliah Whyte are set to take on a solid field of women over 60m at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow, Scotland on February 15.

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.

St Lucian teen sensation Julien Alfred raced to fast times at the Dr Martin Luther King Collegiate Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico this weekend.

St. Lucia’s Julien Alfred said her fast 60m dash over the weekend came as a bit of a surprise but it augurs well for the season ahead in which she aims to be in Tokyo next summer representing her country at the 2020 Olympic Games.

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.

Jamaica’s Natalliah Whyte came away from the Conference USA Indoor Track and Field Championships this past weekend feeling that she is finally on track to achieving her goals for this season.

Following her 7.21, 60m run with which she opened her season on Saturday, seven-time World Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce believes she is gradually returning to the form that established her as one of the world’s best female sprinters.

2018 Commonwealth Games women's 100m champion Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago won the 60m crown in 7.21s at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston on Saturday.

Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson was pleased with her 60-m season opener on Saturday and also had good news about her ongoing battle with an injury that slowed her last season.
