Like her well-known fellow track athlete Lolo Jones, Williams has been a recent convert to the ice track, where the two-time summer Olympian placed third at the U.S. national push championships in late July. In 2013-14, her debut World Cup season, Williams won three medals in the four races she was selected to compete in. It was enough for her to be named to the U.S. team in late January with fellow push athletes Aja Evans and Lolo Jones. Williams will be pushing for USA-1 pilot Elana Meyers
