Jamaican Kimberly Williams has won the silver medal in the women's triple jump at the 2018 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, England on Saturday.

Approaching the final turn, the deficit narrowed to a matter of metres but Dibaba gritted her teeth again and kept the pursuers at bay with a final circuit of 30.46 seconds.
