Tobi Amusan Wins Third Diamond League Trophy



Tobi Amusan Wins Third Diamond League Trophy

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has won her third consecutive Diamond League trophy in the Women’s 100m Hurdles at 12.33 seconds in Eugene, Oregon, US.

Jasmine Camacho-Quinn was 2nd in 12.38s while Keni Harrison came 3rd in 12.44s.

In 2021, the Nigerian made history with her first Diamond League Trophy, clocking 12.42 seconds. She thereafter clinched it in a time of 12.29 seconds in Zurich last year.

But the latest feat comes months after the Nigerian was suspended for doping violations by the Athletics Integrity Unity (AIU).

According to the AIU, she had missed three tests in 12 months. But she was cleared of any violations, just three days before the 2023 World Athletics Championships.

Undeterred, the 27-year-old, vowed to come back “stronger and better”.
