Michelle Williams sets Trials record in 100m freestyle

Michelle Williams picked the perfect time and place to set a new personal best in the women’s 100 metre freestyle.

A finish of 54.21 put the Toronto native at the top of the podium on Wednesday while also breaking a Team Canada Trials record previously held by Arianna F. Vanderpool-Wallace.

The win qualified Williams for the upcoming Pan Am Games and World Championships. Her familiarity with the venue didn’t hurt.
