13 Can't Miss USA Athletes At U20s, Plus 6 More Worldwide

Worldwide U20 Competitors


Briana Williams

Event: 100, 200, 4x100

School: Oakland Park Northeast (FL)

Country: Jamaica

Breakdown: The World Age Group record holder for 15-year-olds at 100m should dial up for a big performance at U20s. Months ago at the CARIFTA Games, Williams walked away with three gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m and looked like Jamaica's next big talent in the sprints. But U20s will offer her biggest test yet. Williams isn't guaranteed gold and will have the toughest fight for gold in the 100m, where she will face American Twanisha Terry for the right to be named fastest young sprinter in the world for 2018. While Williams went a wind-legal 11.13 in March, she hasn't gone under 11.20 since while Terry dropped a wind-legal, sub-11 during her NCAA season. Williams will also feature in the 200m, and will likely contribute to Jamaica's 4x100 team.
