And Tobi Amusan Keeps Winning!

World hurdles champion Tobi Amusan powered Nigeria’s 4x100m women’s team to gold at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, as Nigeria claimed a first-ever Commonwealth Games title in the event.

The women’s 4x100m quartet, which also has Favour Ofili, Rosemary Chukwuma, and Grace Nwokocha, claimed gold in record-breaking fashion, finishing in 42.10secs to break the 42.22secs African record they set at last month’s World Athletics Championships in Oregon, USA.

Amusan also won the gold medal in the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Commonwealth Games (CWG).

The reigning world champion and record holder successfully defended her title at the Alexander stadium on Sunday morning.

Amusan ended the race in 12.30 seconds to also set a new games record in the process.

Devynne Charlton of Barbados claimed the silver medal while England’s Cindy Sember finished 3rd to clinch the bronze.

Last month, at the World Athletic Championship, Amusan broke the hurdles record in the semi-finals in 12.12s.

The 25-year-old became the first Nigerian to win a gold medal at the championship with a spirited display in Eugene, Oregon.
