Queen Sada Williams was fittingly crowned on Monday night when the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) staged its annual Awards Ceremony, honouring the nation’s top athletes at Hilton Barbados Resort.

Williams, who won gold in the women’s 400 metres at the Commonwealth Games in a new meet and national record, was rewarded for that feat. In addition to being named Senior Female Athlete of the Year, she also received the International Excellence award and the coveted President’s Award from BOA chief, Sandra Osborne.

“I am extremely honoured to receive such an important award – the President’s Award. I also want to recognise the other nominees who also had an outstanding season.”

“The successes I had this past season would not have been possible without the contributions and encouragement of so many people, too many to name and I sincerely thank each one of you for helping me make this a memorable season and for giving me a chance to win this award,” the 25-year-old World Championships bronze medallist said.
