MOSCOW, Russia:

Sisters Danielle and Shermaine Williams are through to the 100m hurdles semi-finals after third place finishes in the heats today at the IAAF World Championships of Athletics inside the Luzhniki Stadium.




Danielle Williams, who got a great start but was caught midway the race, posted 13.11 to finish behind Queen Harrison, 12.95, from the USA and Alina Talay, 12.99 from Belarus.



"I cant say that I am pleased with that race but I am pleased to be in the semi-finals," the sprint hurdler told The Gleaner after her race.
