Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan sets new African women’s hurdles record

At the Diamond League meet in Paris, Tobi Amusan of Nigeria set a new African record in the women’s 100-meter hurdles with a time of 12.41 seconds.

Amusan, who produced the third-best run of the season, is only seconds behind Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico, who ran 12.37s, and Alaysha Johnson of the United States, who ran 12.40s.

The 25-year-old Nigerian athlete was a second faster than she was in the September 2021 Diamond League final where she broke Gloria Alozie’s 23-year-old national and continental record.

This is coming after she got two gold medals in women’s hurdles and a 4×100 meter relay at the recently concluded African Athletics Championship in Mauritius.
