SUPER SPEED: Carla Williams will be going to Spain to run in the World Titles.

CARLA Williams will represent Australia in the Junior World Running Titles in Spain next month.

The 18-year-old from Regents Park, who has only been running for the past four years, said she was looking forward to the trip to compete against the world's best runners.

"I will be going to Germany for two weeks to train and race before heading off to the World Titles in Barcelona," she said.

"I will be competing in the 100 metre sprint, 200m sprint and the relay."

Miss Wilson secured her spot to the World Titles after placing first in the national competition last month in Sydney.

She will be going to Spain with two other Australian girls.

Currently, Miss Williams can run the 100 metre sprint in 11.76 seconds, but if she is able to lower her time to under 11.50 seconds, she may be selected to run the relay race for the Australian team at the 2012 London Olympic games.

Her father and coach, Daniel Williams, is confident she will be able to do it.

"She should have been able to beat that time down in Sydney last month, but it was raining and there was a head wind," Mr Daniels said.

"The conditions weren't very good at all.

"She has already beaten many records in her running career.

"Last year, when she was named national champion, she equalled Sally Pearson, the Australian hurdler's record."

Miss Wilson will be competing in Barcelona on Wednesday, June 20 with the help from money raised by the Greenbank RSL.
