Nigeria’s Oluwatobi Amusan smiles home with the sun of $100, 000 for emerging as World Women’s 110m hurdler Champion.
The 25-year-old Amusan won the cash after winning women’s 110m hurdle finale at the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Oregon.
It was a wonderful moment for the sprinter who became the first Nigerian ever to win gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.06s in the final.
She previously set a world record of 12.12s in the semi-final, but improved on it in the final to take home the gold and the cash prize.
The victory, however, banished Amusan ‘s disappointment at the Tokyo Olympics and the last worlds in 2019, where she finished fourth respectively.
Jamaican Britany Anderson took silver, followed by Olympic gold medalist Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico.
