Wil­liams set for cir­cuit

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

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.
