Commonwealth Games 2022: Again, Tobi Amusan wins gold for Nigeria, sets record


Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has won the gold medal in the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Saga Gist reports that Amusan became the first Nigerian athlete to win a World Athletics Championship gold when she stormed to victory in the women’s 100m hurdles in Oregon last month.

The 25-year-old, who had obliterated the world record in an astonishing semi-final where she clocked 12.12sec, powered over the line at Hayward Field in 12.06sec.

Then in Birmingham, United Kingdom on Sunday, Amusan showed her outstanding performance in Oregun was not a fluke.

The world champion successfully defended her title at the Alexander Stadium on Sunday in the women’s 100m hurdles final.

The Nigerian was able to run a Games record of 12.30s, setting other records as well, and becoming the first world champion to win gold and the first Nigerian athlete to do the same.
