CHYNA Tavai Williams's rise to stardom continues as the youngster capped off another successful year in the Australian age group competitions.

The 13-year-old whose parents are from Fiji made headlines after smashing the national age group records in Australia last year.

Williams's grandmother Sera Cardigan who brought a cutting of her article from one of the Australian newspaper said they were happy for the youngster.

Cardigan said Williams wanted to represent Fiji in the future.

"She comes from a sporting family. Her grandfather is the former Fiji 15s rep Josaia Taqiri and her mother is a very good netball player," Cardigan said.

"It's really good to see her improving and performing well every year. We are happy with the progress she has made so far in athletics."

Williams competes in long jump, triple jump and high jump along with track events such as 60 metres hurdles and 4x100m relay.
