Her winning time on Friday was a seasonal best and it’s also the third fastest in the world this year behind Americans Christina Clemons’ 7.83 and Tonea Marshall’s 7.86.

Williams’ time, which was a tad slower than her 7.86 personal best, which was set in Feb. last year – improved the 7.97 seconds she clocked on Jan. 29 at the same venue before she was disqualified in the final.
