It was a back-to-back victory for Nigerian athlete Tobi Amusan who secured her second consecutive victory in the women’s 100m hurdles event at the Gyulai István Memorial Meet.
With just over a month until the World Athletics Championships, Amusan’s dominant performance signalled her readiness to take on the world’s best.
In an impressive display of athleticism, Amusan surged through the finish line in a remarkable time of 12.35 seconds, braving a slight headwind of -0.5 m/s. The Nigerian sprinter showcased her agility and speed as she soared over each hurdle with precision, leaving her competitors in her wake.
The race witnessed fierce competition from the United States of America duo, Nia Ali and Aleysha Johnson. Ali, the reigning world champion, put up a formidable challenge, crossing the line in 12.41 seconds to secure second place. Johnson, known for her consistent performances, trailed closely behind with a time of 12.50 seconds, clinching the third spot on the podium.
A few days ago, the Commonwealth Games Champion triumph came hot on the heels of her remarkable performance at Sunday’s Diamond League meeting in Silesia, where she set a season’s best time of 12.34 seconds, narrowly edging out the USA’s Kendra Harrison and Nia Ali.
