The talented Nigerian Athlete; Oluwatobiloba Ayomide Amusan ran an incredible 12.



40 seconds (+1.5m/s) in her opening performance at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, USA to set a new African record and Nigeria’s fastest time in the history of the competition in the women's 100mH event.

The Nigerian has now made the semifinal of the event three times which is an extension of her record as the only Nigerian female 100m hurdles runner to make the penultimate round of the competition. She finished (14th s.f) in the World Championships in London 2017 and missed the podium, finishing 4th in the same competition 2 years later in Doha, Qatar.

Amusan has also smashed four of the six records, set by the legendary Abia-born Gloria Alozie before she switched allegiance to Spain on July 06, 2001.

Meanwhile, several people have been celebrating the feat such as Usain Bolt, Bola Tinubu, and many others.
