Tobi Amusan, a record-holder from Nigeria who finished in 12.29 seconds to successfully defend 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 demonstration in Eugene, Oregon, Amusan became the first Nigerian to take home a gold medal at the competition.
With a 12:57s, she successfully defended her African championship title.
Amusan has served as a role model for female athletes both domestically and internationally.
