She overtook Kendra Harrison’s then world record time of 12.20 seconds when the American ran at the London Müller Anniversary Games in 2016.

The next day, Amusan again broke her own world record in the final with a time of 12.06 (2.5m/s) to win gold in the event but it couldn’t be legally recognised as a world record because it was wind-assisted.

The latest development now confirmed Amusan as Nigeria’s first World Record holder as well as the latest World Record holder.
