Jamaican sprint hurdler Danielle Williams won the women’s 60m hurdles at the Clemson Tiger Paw Invitational on Friday after clocking 7.87 seconds. The time was just 0.01 shy of her lifetime best in the event.

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.

The 28-year-old who won bronze at the 2019 world championships in Doha, Qatar, was a comfortable winner over Kentucky’s Masai Russell, who recorded 8.09 seconds, with third going to Tiana McMinn of the University of Miami in 8.13.

Another Jamaican, Clemson’s Trishauna Hemmings, clocked 8.15 for fourth in the final.
