Her return time is the 3rd fastest time in the world in 2022, followed by Devynne Charlton who finished 2nd in 12.63s (SB) and Cindy Sember 3rd in a time of 12.73s.
It has been an interesting period for the American based athlete as she successfully retained her title in the women’s 100m Hurdles.
Amusan also won gold for Nigeria in the women’s 4x100m Relay at the just concluded African Senior Athletics Championship in Mauritius.
