Angela Williams is an excellent athlete and, according to all who know her, an outstanding young women. But I must say I was some what doubtful of her competitiveness on the international level from early on (having watched her in California since High school). The reason is not her competitveness or work ethic, both which seem strong. It stikes me as a simple case of her physical stature. At 5-1 she seems to simply be too small to maintain speed through a full 100. She is probably the greatest starter in the world when in shape, but the taller athletes start gaining at 40 meters and go past at about 55. This is why she is competitive indoors but struggles outside. And yes, I know Gayle Devers is also small, but even she is a few inches taller and seems to have longer and more heavily muscled legs. (and was always gained on in the latter parts of even her fastest races). I think the Athlete Angela most resembels is Nellie Coman (60m world Champion of years past) a great starter but never really a medal threat outdoors.I think Angela can still have a fine competitive career, specifically as the US lead off at 4x100, but I think her early succsess may have set unrealistic expectations.
