Williams Named Trackshark's Top Performer

Tennessee senior sprinter Rubin Williams was named National Male Performer of the Week by Trackshark.com following an impressive showing at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational in New York City this past weekend.

Williams, a 12-time All-America and four-time SEC champion, broke the meet record and lowered his own world-leading time in the 200-meter dash with his time of 20.66 seconds. His time leads the world by two-tenths of a second and breaks the previous record of 20.67, recorded by six-time NCAA champion Xavier Carter in 2005.

In addition to his victory in the 200, Williams also tied his personal-best time of 6.64 in the preliminaries of the 60 that stands tied for fourth on Tennessee???s all-time list in the event. His time ties him with teammate Evander Wells for fifth in the NCAA and third in the SEC this season.

This is the second time Williams has received the national honor from Trackshark after also earning national recognition following his Penn State National Invitational meet-record breaking performance in the 60 and original world-leading clocking in the 200 two weeks ago.
