Nigeria’s champion sprinter, Tobi Amusan on Friday night won silver medal at the ongoing Diamond League Meet after breaking through at this year’s World Athletics Championship in Oregon, United States.
Still smarting from the record Commonwealth Games gold she won in Birmingham earlier in August, Amusan hoped to continue her superlative performance but met a resistant hurdle as she lost the gold medal to 2020 Tokyo Olympics winner, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico.
Camacho-Quinn got one over Tobi Amusan winning the women’s 100m Hurdles at the Diamond League in a new Meeting Record of 12.34s (-0.9).
Amusan finished second in 12.45s and qualified for Zurich, while US’ Tia Jones ran a new Personal Best of 12.47s to finish third.
The Diamond League is an annual series of elite track and field athletics competitions comprising 14 of the best invitational athletics meetings.
The series sits in the top tier of the World Athletics one-day meeting competitions.
