Why I Almost Quit – Tobi Amusan

World 100 metres hurdles record holder, Tobiloba Amusan has revealed how she almost quit the sport, just before her big break.

Amusan, revealed that she told herself if athletics did not work out for her for a last time, before her big break, that she was certain to cut the ties with the sport.

In a chat with brila.net, she revealed just two weeks to the Olympic Games which announced her to the world, she had three separate injuries and could not even cross over an hurdle.

Feeling deserted by her own country, she took a loan up to the tune of fifty thousand dollars to get fit enough for the challenges before her.

She also revealed that she at one point had injured her hamstring, quads and her patella, which were results of trying to break the barriers her body could take her.

She said she lifted weights of 90kg, even as she weighed 50kg, all to be able to make it to the top.

She however stressed the importance of having positive people around her, of which without them, she would have gone astray.
