“I was the ‘Nearly girl’, now I did it!” — Tobi Amusan

Tobi Amusan became Nigeria’s first ever World Champion in Athletics after running a wind-assisted 12.06 to win the women’s 100m hurdles final.

She also ran world record of 12.12s in the semi-final which is now the official world record time for the women’s 100m hurdle.

The Nigerian beat current Commonwealth Champion, Jamaica’s Brittany Anderson who finished second and Olympic Champion from Cuba, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who came third.

“I’m the ‘almost girl’, like everyone used to say, 4th, 4th, 4th, now I did it!”

“I believe in my abilities, but I was not expecting a world record at these championships.” She said after winning the race.

The 25-year-old also walked away with a Cheque of $100,000 for winning Gold in the final of the women’s 100m hurdles event in Eugene, Oregon.
