Sada thrilled by record


Share post:

NICKNAMED the “Gazelle”, Sada Williams of Harrison College has within the last three years become one of the leading female sprinters in Barbados. Williams, formerly of the Coleridge & Parry School, has been dominating the women’s 200 metres and 400 metres this season.

On Friday she ran a sizzling 22.61 seconds to win the Under-20 Girls’ 200 metres at the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletic Championships. Her time is a new national record, a national junior record, a BSSAC record and an Olympic qualifying time. 

The old national record was 22.91 seconds set in 2008 by Jade Bailey. 

“I am really excited to not only have broken the record but to have also run a new personal best as well,” said Williams.
