Tobi Amusan Breaks Commonwealth Games Record…. Wins Gold Medal
Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan on Sunday broke Commonwealth Games record to grab gold in the Women’s 100m hurdles final at Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The Nigerian speed star breasted the tape in 12.30 seconds to successfully defend the title she won in Tokyo, Japan.
Amusan beat the Bahamas’s Devynne Charlton 12.58 seconds and England’s Cindy Sember to the top prize.
It can be recall that Amusan was the first Nigerian ever to win gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.06s.
Amusan’s victory, will, for her, be some sort of compensation for a disappointing outing in Tokyo last year, where she finished fourth in the final despite being touted to take one of the medals.She walked away with the sum of $100,000 as prize money.
