The first time Inter-Guiana Games athlete, Alexis Williams, did just what she stated to Kaieteur Sport before her races at the Guyana Defence Force Ground last Friday.
“I have to retain my title, it is my wish and my dream and today (Friday) I will make my dream a reality at this ground as I did last year… I am here to entertain my fans and also make myself, my family, my facility and Club (Police Progressive Youth Club) proud,” the National athlete told Kaieteur Sport just before the start of the 3000m.
The 19 years old athlete, who was enthusiastic about achieving her said victories, captured the first victory of the day with the win of the women’s 3000m in a time of 13:13.4 seconds. This time surely did not contest to her timings cataloged at the Inter-Guiana Games which was held two weeks ago in Suriname, Paramaribo.
The middle distance athlete then entered the 400 metre, an unusual event for her which required a great amount of speed and endurance. Despite the lack of required speed needed for the sprint event, Williams proved that she was eligible to take the top podium in the event as she clocked 70seconds to a comfortable win.
The Police Progressive Youth Club athlete returned to remind the viewers that she was the best in the female category with the claims of 800m then 1500m respectively.
In the process of registering a third win of the day; Williams also recorded a new personal time of 2:46.5 seconds in the 800m.
Williams who was named the Captain for her Faculty (Natural Science) displayed good leadership as she participated in the 4x100m, 4x400m and the 1500m medley races which contributed to Natural Science being the overall winners.
Meanwhile, Williams expressed her gratitude to her coach, Lyndon Wilson who aided in her performances at the University of Guyana sports. “All I would like to say is that I am grateful for my Coach Lyndon Wilson for administering and dedicating his time to me while training,” the Champion athlete said to Kaieteur Sport after the conclusion of the relays.
