September 18, 20231 min read

Nigeria sprinter, Tobi Amusan tasted victory at the Diamond League final in Oregon on Sunday.

The Nigerian star won Women’s 100m Hurdles with a time of 12.33 seconds to clinch her third successive diamond league title.

Amusan arrived Diamond League Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field with a point to prove after disappointing outing at the last World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

The 26-year-old lost her world title in embarrassing fashion, placing sixth in the final won by Jamaica’s Danielle Williams.

Amusan started the race strong and maintained her lead and finished with a season-best time of 12.33 seconds.

It was the fourth fastest time in the world this season.

Budapest silver medalist Jasmine Camacho-Quinn from Puerto Rico finished second with a time of 12.38, while Keni Harrison from the United States took third place with a time of 12.44.

The world champion, Danielle Williams from Jamaica, finished fourth with a time of 12.47.

Amusan is now the second woman in Diamond League history to win three consecutive 100m hurdles titles.

My name is Precious Etim. I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better.
