Amusan, the 25-year-old Nigerian, ran a new 12.29 seconds meeting record to win the 100m hurdles, yesterday 8th September, 2022.

So far, it is her second fastest legal time ever over the high hurdles after the 12.12 seconds world record she ran in Oregon, U.S., venue of the World Championships. It is also one hundredth of a second faster than the 12.30 seconds record she ran to successfully defend her Commonwealth Games title last month in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Flash Sales

The celebrated Nigerian athlete has now successfully defended four titles this year.

Tia Jones, who came second behind the Nigerian last Sunday at the ISTAF 2022 in Berlin, ran 12.40 seconds, while Britany Anderson of Jamaica was third in 12.42 seconds.

Reigning Olympic champion, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn finished a disappointing fourth (12.49 seconds).

This would be Amusan’s sixth win in 14 appearances against Camacho-Quinn, who ran a new 12.27 seconds personal best to win in Brussels last week.

The year 2022 has been a historic one for Amusan.

Amusan ran 12.41 seconds at a Diamond League meeting in Paris before storming Benin City, Nigeria, to rewrite the 12.63 seconds Nigerian Championships record set in 1997 by Angela Atede in Lagos.

The reigning African champion ran 12.58 seconds to add the championships record to her collections before going to the biggest stage in world athletics to achieve a legendary status.
