Amusan wins the Diamond League trophy and establishes a new record.

Tobi Amusan, a record-holder from Nigeria who finished in 12.29 seconds to successfully retain her Diamond League title, set a new record on Thursday. 

At the Diamond League in Zurich this year, she took first place in the women’s 100-meter hurdles. 

Following the winner, Kendra Harrison of the United States and Britany Anderson of Jamaica came in second and third, respectively. 

At the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the 25-year-old had won the gold medal in the women’s 100-meter hurdles in August. 

This came after she ran the hurdles record down in the semifinals of the World Athletic Championship in 12.12 seconds.

With her wind speed display in Eugene, Oregon, Amusan became the first Nigerian to win a gold medal at the championship. 

She also ran a 12:57 to defend her African championship title. 

Amusan has been a role model for female athletes both at home and abroad.
