Tobi Amusan Wins Women's 100m Hurdles Round 1 At African Games

IKEJA, Nigeria - March 20, 2024 - PRLog -- Oluwatobiloba Ayomide "Tobi" Amusan OON is a Nigerian track and field athlete who specialises in the 100 metres hurdles and also competes as a sprinte. Nigerian sprint Queen, Tobi Amusan has won the women's 100m hurdles Round 1 heat at the 13th Africa Games in Ghana. Amusan won the heat with a time of 13.03s. By virtue of her victory, she secured a spot in the semis of the women's 100m hurdles.

Amusan ran a new 12.68 Games record to successfully defend her 2015 title five years ago in Rabat and will be looking to become the first sprint hurdle, a second Nigerian woman and the third Nigerian in general to win an African Games track and field event three straight times. This will be the third time Amusan will be gunning for a hat-trick of 100m hurdles titles in quick succession after she successfully defended her Nigerian Championship title in Benin City last July in Benin City, Nigeria and the Diamond League crown last September in Oregon, USA.
