Tobi Amusan Wins Another Trophy As She Sets New Record (Video)

Tobi Amusan, who is from Nigeria, has set a new record for sprinting.

She did this on Thursday at the Diamond League final in Zurich, where she won the women’s 100-meter hurdles race.

The 100m hurdles world champion and record holder finished the race on Thursday, September 8, in 12.29 seconds.

Last year, the Nigerian ran a 12.42-second race to win the Diamond League trophy.

Britany Anderson of Jamaica came in third with a time of 12.42s. Tia Jones of the United States came in second with a time of 12.40s.

She won the women’s 100m hurdles event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Birmingham in August.

At the World Athletic Championship a month earlier, Amusan broke the hurdles record in the semi-finals in 12.12 seconds.

With a strong performance in Eugene, Oregon, the 25-year-old also became the first Nigerian to win a gold medal at the championship.

Amusan is the first and only Nigerian to win the titles of African, Commonwealth, and World champion all in the same year.
