Williams wants to make his mark.

BRITAIN'S Rhys Williams is determined to make a name for himself after reaching the final of the 400m hurdles at the European Championships.

Williams won his semi-final in 49.63 seconds to ensure his battle with team-mate Nathan Woodward for Olympic selection will be decided in Helsinki's own Olympic stadium this evening.

And although Williams eased down to miss out on the second 'A' standard of 49.50secs he needs to match those Woodward already holds, the Welshman believes that will come by chasing medals on Friday.

"There's no point being good in the heats and getting nowhere in the final," said the 28-year-old.
