IAAF Continental Cup Highlights

100m Hurdles IAAF Continental Cup for Women Ostrava 2018 with Kendra Harrison & Danielle Williams

Clemson volunteer assistant coach and Jamaican 2015 World Championships gold medalist Danielle Williams of Team Americas secured a rare victory this season by winning the women’s 100-meter hurdles on the first day of the 2018 IAAF Continental Cup in Ostrava, Czech Republic on Saturday.

Williams  led home an Americas 1-2 as world record-holder and former Clemson standout Kendra “Keni” Harrison finished second.

Harrison, the world indoor champion, got off to the best start but Williams was close behind throughout. While Harrison lost a bit of momentum in the latter stages, Williams came off the final hurdle best and hurtled towards the line in 12.49, just 0.02 shy of the competition record. Harrison was second with a time of 12.52 seconds.
