Tobi Amusan Clinches 100m Hurdles Gold In African Games

Tobi Amusan, Nigeria’s athletics queen, exceeded supporters’ hopes by blasting through the 100m hurdles final at the 2024 African Games in Ghana to earn gold.

Amusan, the 100mH world record holder, was a clear favourite going into the race, but was given a yellow after beating the gun for the first time, so he lined up again.

Amusan made no mistakes as the pistol went off for the second time, sprinting to an easy win in 12.89 seconds.

The win completes the Nigerian’s hat-trick of African Games titles, having won the previous two editions in Congo Brazzaville and Rabat.

Faith Osamuyi, the other Nigerian competitor in the race, finished fourth in 13.77 seconds, just missing out on a podium spot.
