CWG: Tobi Amusan Breaks another record to win Gold

Published on

Tobi Amusan doesn’t seem to know how to stop anymore as the 25-year-old won the Gold medal in 12.30secs for Team Nigeria in the Women’s 100m Hurdles final in Birmingham.

The “Express” Madam came like a rocket, blazing through the field. Not only did she successfully defend her title, and then also broke the Commonwealth Games record.

Amusan became the first World Champion to win Gold in the event and the first Nigerian athlete ever (dead or alive) to be crowned champion at all levels of athletics in the same year.

Amusan said after her final victory, “Honestly, I believe in my abilities but I was not expecting a world record at these championships.

“The goal is always just to execute well and get the win. So the world record is a bonus. I knew I had it in me but I could not believe it when I saw it on the screen after the semis.

“Before the final, I just tried to stay calm and to do my best. I took a deep breath knowing that I have some goals to accomplish and it worked pretty well. I knew it was very fast but not this fast.”

With this result, Nigeria has now won 10 gold medals and 31 medals in total.
