Jodie Williams wins 200m silver medal at Europeans

Jodie Williams has the style, she has the speed and now, after a longer wait than she would ideally have liked, she has the silverware.
With a brilliantly controlled performance here in her 200 metres final on Friday night, producing a lifetime best of 22.46 sec, Britain’s glamorous sprinting starlet grasped a second major silver medal in the space of three weeks. Perhaps the many breathless predictions attracted by Williams, who turns 21 next month and boasts a 151-race winning streak from her junior days, were not so premature after all.
She was over 0.4 sec adrift of ­Holland’s Dafne Schippers, but Williams, still giddy with pride at her silver at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, affected not to care one iota. “To come away with two silver medals, I couldn’t ask for any more,” she said.
“I’m so happy. I was trying to chase Dafne down, but her time was crazy. I thought perhaps that I could get a little more out of tonight, but I’m so tired after the Commonwealths.”
