NEW CHAMPS SMOOTH-STRIDING Sada Williams booked her ticket to the Rio Olympic Games in Brazil, later this year with a record-breaking 200 metres run at the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships (BSSAC), yesterday.

Competing for her new school, Harrison College in the Under-20 girls’ 200 metres, the fleet-footed former Coleridge & Parry student, sped to a sizzling 22.61 seconds to break Yolande Straughn’s 31-year-old BSSAC record of 23.47 seconds, which was set in 1985.
