Injury curse strikes once more for triple jumper Williams
INJURY CURSE: Ben Williams heads to Bedford with the exact same injury as last year after damaging ankle ligaments in Loughborough
Williams' leap of 16.09m in Grangemouth last August was enough to place him fifth in the overall British rankings in 2009.
But after watching his rivals creep closer to him while nursing his ankle, Williams has vowed to give them something to think about on his return to the sandpit this weekend.
"I saw Kola Adedoyin has put in a big PB this year which is interesting, so I'll be going to try and get another distance down for myself. I don't want these guys getting too close to me," added Williams, who is part of the Original Source funded UKA Heroes initiative.
"I do look at how other people are doing, I'm mainly focused on myself but it is always interesting to see what other people are up to as well.
"He hasn't backed up that jump yet so it will be interesting to see if it is something he can maintain but I would like to think I could improve my own jumps again.
"I've already got the qualification standard for the World Junior Championships quite comfortably so it isn't about standards for me.
"I am just aiming to jump as far as I can and trying to make sure I am pushing myself to be the best I can be."
