Tobi Amusan Clinches Third Diamond League Trophy In A Row

Nigerian track queen Tobi Amusan has won the 100m hurdles at the Diamond League in Eugene, Oregon, US.

The Sunday feat is her third consecutive Diamond League trophy.

Amusan achieved this after finishing in 12.33 seconds to see off competition from Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quin in 12.38 seconds.

US Kendra Harrison came third in the race.

The Nigerian created history in 2021 when she won her first Diamond League Trophy in 12.42 seconds. She then won it in Zurich last year in a timing of 12.29 seconds.

However, the remarkable achievement comes months after the Nigerian was suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unity (AIU) for drug offenses.

She had missed three tests in the previous 12 months, according to the AIU.But, just three days before the 2023 World Athletics Championships, she was absolved of any infractions.

She was unable to retain her title in Budapest, finishing sixth in the final at Hungary’s National Athletics Centre.

Undeterred, the 27-year-old, vowed to come back “stronger and better”.
