IT WAS always going to be a tough night for Danielle Williams in the 100m hurdles against a high quality field at the Diamond League in Monaco, but the young athlete proved she wasn't totally out of her depth.

Coming in third place in a respectable time of 12.58s Williams continued her upward curve in a season that has seen her lower her personal best to 12.56s.

American Kendra Harrison was the overwhelming favourite coming into the meeting and the world record holder didn't disappoint, proving once again that she is the class act in this event and will probably be the women to beat in London at the World Championships next month.

Conditions at the Stade Louis II were perfect for sprinting and assessing her performance Williams said: "It wasn't a good execution on my part tonight," she admitted.




She added: "I made some errors in the race and I think that cost me a faster time but it's my first race in a month so I'm happy. After the national trials I went back into training and that's where I've been."

Looking forward the 24-year-old said she hoped things would continue in a similar vain to how the season has gone so far.

"I'm happy, I'm in the best form that I could ask for, things are going great in training so it's just to go out there on the track and perform.

"As a professional athlete you can only hope that you are consistent because that is what you want, consistency gets you results. It shows that I am putting in the work and I am getting the results so I'm happy. "
