Williams passes test

World junior champion Jodie Williams was among the qualifiers in the women's 100 metres Olympic athletics trials in Birmingham despite considerable strapping on her right leg and the small matter of sitting her final A level exams this week.
In the men's 400m hurdles, world champion Dai Greene - who recently revealed he underwent a knee operation in December - put underwhelming early-season form behind him to secure his place in Saturday's final.
Greene won his heat in 50.80s and was joined in the final by the four other men who have achieved the 'A' standard; Nathan Woodward, Rhys Williams, Jack Green and Richard Yates.
Greene said: "Job done, ready for the final tomorrow. Hopefully it's nicer conditions because there are a lot of good people here. I'm looking forward to racing.
"It hasn't been a perfect start to the season but things are getting better. I'm still on track for peaking in the summer."
