Nigerian sprinter Tobi Amusan has surpassed world champion, Danielle Williams to secure first place in the 100m hurdles at the Jamaica Athletics competition.

Clocking in at an impressive time of 12.40 seconds (0.9m/s), Amusan not only bested the current world champion but also cemented her status as the fastest woman globally.

This extraordinary triumph signifies a significant milestone in Amusan’s athletic journey, as she now holds the top spot in the world rankings, surpassing Tonea Marshall’s previous world-leading time of 12.42 seconds achieved in late April.

With the Paris 2024 Olympics looming ahead, Amusan’s dominance in the 100m hurdles serves as a clear message to her rivals: she is a formidable contender.

However, the Minister of Sports Development John Enoh congratulated Amusan on her outstanding achievement, praising her for making Nigeria proud. “Take your flowers Tobi Amusan, you stormed to an emphatic win in the women’s 100m hurdles at the Jamaica Athletics Invitational, clocking a time of 12.40s (0.9), a World Lead time!”
