Briana Williams

Jamaican sprint sensation Briana Williams has been included in the 55-athlete contingent that will be representing Jamaica in the Doha 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships in Qatar.

Briana is slated to run in the 100m and 4x100m relay events, subject to the results from her hearing with the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) from September 23 to 25.

Williams recently came under scrutiny after testing positive at the Supreme Ventures Limited/JAAA National Senior and Junior Championships in June for the banned diuretic Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ).
