Tobi Amusan has gotten another record breaking gold medal for her country Nigeria at the commonwealth games that was held in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
The 25-year-old has been in rankling structure in the previous year, breaking the African 100 meters hurdles record multiple times for 10 months now.
After barely passing up the platform two times at the World Athletics Championships in Doha in 2019 and at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics where she put fourth on the two events, Amusan at long last struck gold at the World Championships in Oregon while establishing a worldwide best of 12.12 seconds in the semi-finals.
Amusan went significantly quicker in the last race, timing 12.06 seconds. Be that as it may, her triumphant time isn’t perceived as a world record because of an unlawful tailwind of 2.5 meters each second.
Devynne Charlton completed a far off second to win silver for the Bahamas while Cindy Sember whose father is Nigerian won bronze for Great Britain.
Regardless of coming out on top in the race serenely, Amusan said she didn’t execute it as well as could be expected.
“Mentally, it was challenging. It was nerve-racking. You know, when I say I poorly executed race, I know when I execute smoothly,” she said.
“I think my first five hurdles weren’t it, but I was able to get myself together and regroup and do what I needed to do and I did just that’’.
She dedicated her latest gold medal to God, her support system which includes her family, supporters, and her Jamaican coach, Lacena Golding Clarke under whom she has been training since 2016.
