Tobi Amusan has again set the bar high as she becomes the world’s fastest woman in 100m hurdles.

Tobi Amusan has become the world’s fastest woman after setting a new record in the women’s 100m hurdles in a time of 12.40 seconds at the first Jamaica Athletics Invitational in Kingston.

John Enoh, the minister of sports development, took to his X handle to congratulate Amusan on the feat.

He wrote:
