This was the third time that Adrian surpassed his own National Record in the U.S. which was originally established at 66.87m in 2015.

The young athlete has the distinction of winning the first CARIFTA gold for St. Kitts & Nevis in seven years. A feat which was accomplished back in 2010. Williams in 2011, etched his name in the CARIFTA Games hall of fame book when he set a new javelin record at the said games, the first athlete from St. Kitts and Nevis to do so.

SKN PULSE wishes to extend congratulations to Adrian as he continues to aspire for the highest.
