Jamaica's 18-year-old sprint sensation, Briana Williams has signed a three-year contract to become a brand ambassador for GraceKennedy (GK) Foods.

GraceKennedy Group CEO, Don Wehby, made the announcement through a press release on Wednesday.

Williams will represent the GK Foods brand locally and also in the regional and international markets.

“We have been watching Briana’s performances for some time now, and easily concluded that she would be a great addition to GraceKennedy. Her talent, discipline, and focus are beyond impressive, especially at such an early stage in her career. Briana’s passion, determination, and resilience are something special, and we’re proud to welcome her to the GraceKennedy family. We know that over the next three years her career will really take off,” Wehby said.  

At age 16, Williams became the youngest female ever to win both the 100 and 200 metres at the 2018 IAAF World Under-20 Championships in Tampere, Finland. She is also the first Jamaican since Usain Bolt to earn the Austin Sealy award two years in a row (2018 and 2019) at the Carifta Games. At the 2019 Carifta Games, Williams secured three gold medals in the Under-20 category for the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relays.

“It really is an honour to represent GraceKennedy, a brand I admired growing up, and I am looking forward to a great partnership,” said Williams. “I am also excited to announce that as part of my new collaboration with GraceKennedy, I will be making a donation to a charity of my choice every year.”

Williams joins GraceKennedy’s outstanding list of Ambassadors, which includes world-class athletes Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce, Alia Atkinson, and Hansel Parchment.
