About Ivory
Ivory Williams has proven to be a force in American sprinting. It landed him on Team USA for the 2011 World Outdoor Championships as a member of the 4x100m relay. His career includes a top five finish in the USA Outdoor Championships and his times have been in the top 10 in the country each year since 2008. He consistently proves himself a competitive sprinter as he has posted sub-10 marks since the 2008 Olympic Trial quarter-finals. However, he failed to progress beyond the semi-finals after being beat by Xavier Carter by just a thousandth of a second. He ran a, at the time, personal best of 6.52 seconds in the 60 meters at the 2009 USA Indoor Championships, reaching the final as the fastest qualifier. However, he was disqualified in the final of the event for a false start.
