For the second time in less than one year, Nigeria’s 100m Huddle prodige, Oluwatobi Amusan, has shattered the continent’s record. The 25 year speedster posted the new 12.41 seconds in Paris, France, on Saturday at the Diamond League meet.
Amusan broke her own record with her third best run of the season at the Diamond League meet in Paris, France on Saturday. With the new status, she moved up to world’s number 3 behind World Leader Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, 12.37s and Alaysha Johnson, 12.40s.
Amusan, the 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist, was on song in September 2021 at Zurich Diamond League, where she also set a sensational continental Record and Personal Best of 12.42secs. She however, narrowly missed out on a podium stand at the Olympics after placing fourth behind Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the USA’s Kendra Harrison and Tapper. She’s only been involved in four races thereafter.
Over the period, she picked up the Citius Meeting, Bern, Switzerland, in 12.80secs on August 21, 2021 and placed fourth at the Paris Diamond League seven days later.
