EUGENE, Ore. --- Georgia true freshman Kendell Williams sped to a new meet record in the 100-meter hurdles to win the gold medal at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Eugene, Ore., on Sunday.

The Marietta, Ga., native clocked a 12.89 to better the previous meet record mark of 12.96 set by Cuba’s Aliuska Lopez in 1988.  Williams edged fellow American Dion Hall (12.92) on Sunday by taking over the lead in the final hurdle.  Williams’ 12.89 again got her close to Lopez’s world record of 12.84 (1987) after Williams set the American Junior and school records with a 12.87 at the USATF Championships in early July.

The 5-foot-9 Kell High School graduate won two NCAA titles and one SEC title, set two collegiate records, two American Junior records, one World Junior record, an SEC Championships record, two NCAA Championship records and two school records in her first year with the Bulldogs.

Williams will return for her sophomore season in 2015 after she helped lead the Lady Bulldogs to a tie for third place at the 2014 NCAA Indoor Championships and a fifth-place finish at this year’s national outdoor meet.
