Tobi Amusan became a world champion after winning the women’s 110m race at the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Oregon.
The Nigerian ran an extraordinary race to win the race and set a new world record in the process.
The 25-year-old came into the final in top form after winning her heat with the new 100m hurdles world record, when she clocked 12.12 seconds.
Her time beats the 12.20 seconds set by American Kendra Harrison, who finished second behind Amusan, in 2016.
Amusan went on to win gold in the final, two hours later with another astonishing record time of 22.6s.
She became the first Nigerian to win a gold medal at the World Championship.
