Jamaica’s Olympic sprint relay gold medalist Briana Williams has made the decision to switch her coach from former Trinidadian athlete Ato Boldon to a new coaching setup at Titans International Track Club.
Boldon was responsible for helping Williams to hone her athletic skills at an early age.
She won various athletic events, including double gold at the World Under-20 Championships in 2018 in Finland.
According to press reports, coach at Titans International Track Club Gregory Little says his team is excited to begin working with Olympic sprint relay gold medalist Briana Williams at their training base in St Andrew.
Little and Olympian Michael Frater currently condition the likes of Yohan Blake, the world’s second fastest man, 2014 Commonwealth Games champion Kemar Bailey-Cole and World Championships representative Ackeem Blake.
Little says their results over the past season are bearing fruit. Williams is currently the national junior 200-meter record holder with 22.50 seconds.
The 20-year-old Williams worked with Boldon as coach and mentor for the last 7 years, during which time she helped Jamaica win gold in the sprint relay at the Tokyo Olympics and silver at this year’s World Athletics Championships.
She will retain her agent, HIS Sports, and manager, Leep Marketing.
