Tobi Amusan becomes the first Nigerian to win a World Athletics Championship Gold as she runs to victory in the women’s 100m hurdles in Eugene, Oregon on Sunday.
Amusan who had broken the former record in an amazing semi-final where she clocked 12.12 seconds becomes the new World Record holder and the first Nigerian in history to break a world record.
However, her winning time at the finals will not be recognized as a world record due to a strong following win of 2.5 meters per second.
While, Jamaica’s Britany Anderson took silver in 12.23 seconds, while Olympic Champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico claimed bronze in 12.23.
