Williams finishes 9th in London

That is a height that I should never go out on, Williams said later. But it happened. It happened really fast. When I didnt make the third bar, I just didnt believe it was done. Still cant. It hurts.

I just started thinking of everybody who helped get me here -- family and friends and everybody. And I know that they still love me This was Gods plan for me. I cant get down on myself too much. It just hurts.

Russias Ivan Ukhov won the gold medal and the U.S.s Erik Kynard won silver. There was a three-way tie for third between athletes from Qatar, Canada and Great Britain.
