danielle williamsKingston, Jamaica. August 15, 2019: The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) today announced that Sprint Hurdler and former World Champion, Danielle Williams, has been deem eligible for selection to the Jamaica Team to the 2019 IAAF Word Championship to be held in Doha, Qatar, next month.

In a statement this afternoon, the JAAA announced that following international expert advice and a review of the selection policy, the Association said that the fairest way to proceed is for the JAAA to make its selection decision based on the multiple criteria listed in published policy, although the specific case is not covered.

The JAAA also said the 100m sprint hurdle race at the National Championship, had been ruled null and void and Ms Williams' disqualification could, therefore, not stand given that the race was never completed and has been declared null and void.

The JAAA also announced its decision to make the relevant selection on September 6, 2019, which is the closing date for entries to the World Championships.

The Association said its main consideration was fairness to all athletes and compliance with both JAAA and IAAF rules.
