Official: Amusan becomes the first Nigerian to hold a world record

Tobi Amusan’s world record at the 2022 World Athletics Championship has been ratified by the world governing body.

The World governing body made the announcement via their official website this Tuesday.

Amusan, 25, ran a record time of 12.12 in the women’s 100m hurdles semifinals, to shatter the record of 12.20s, set by USA’s Kendra Harrison in London in 2016.

Tobi Amusan then improved on it with a return time of 12.06 (2.5m/s) to win the gold medal, but it was tagged as wind-assisted.

However, the IAAF however has now confirmed the time as the official world record.

The two-time diamond League winner now becomes the first Nigerian to hold a World record and also win gold medal simultaneously.
