Team Nigeria reigned supreme in relays, hurdles and Javelin events on the third day of athletics events with Tobiloba Amusan breaking a longtime record at the Rabat 2019 African Games.
Hurdles expert Tobiloba Amusan broke a 20-year-old games record previously held by another Nigerian, Gloria Alozie.
Amusan set a new games record of 12.68seconds in the 100m Hurdles event. The previous record set by Alozie was 12.74secs during the 1999 edition of the African Games.
Wednesday’s proceedings in the track and field events equally yielded more medals for Nigeria with the Women 4x100m relay team coasting home to a time of 44.16s to pick gold.
