Williams set for circuit
Competing in her second 200m at the local woman’s league for her club Winsor Eton Slough and Hounslow after suffering a 4cm tear in her hamstring nine weeks ago, Monique Williams clocked a time of 23.61 seconds.
Running into a head wind for the first 80m on the bend and a tail wind over the last 100m Williams looked strong and now has the confidence to get back on the international circuit next Saturday in Bottrop, Germany were she will compete in the 200m.
Williams has had treatment from leading physiotherapists and top British doctors since returning to Britain.
‘‘To say it has been a stressful time would be an understatement, realising that we could not push her rehabilitation and having to have the patience to heal the tear,’’ said her father, Chris Williams.
Strength and conditioning coach Sam Chambers is impressed with William’s achievement.
‘‘First of all I would like to say well done to you all, especially Monique.
‘‘Who would have thought two months ago you couldn’t walk without a limp, now you are sprinting your fastest times in two years. There’s no doubt that the time posted will turn a few heads around here and will also help our cause,’’ Chambers said.
