Biography

Wendy Lian Williams was a five-time US Champion who competed internationally for the US from 1984-91. She was 1989 World Cup champion and won a bronze medal at the 1991 World Championships on platform. While diving she studied psychology at the University of Miami, winning a 1989 NCAA Championship on platform. A back injury in early 1992 forced her to retire.

Williams had also worked as a model for several years, appearing in a layout in Mademoiselle magazine entitled “The Great American Body.” However, after her back injury, she finished her degree at Miami and then studied massage therapy and settled first in Hawai’i, on Maui, where she started her own massage practice, although after marrying, she and her husband lived in Virginia. She was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
