Tobi Amusan pockets N65m for clinching Gold at World Athletics Championships

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan pocketed $100,000 for winning Gold in the final of the women’s 100m hurdles event in Eugene, Oregon where she set a new world record.

Amusan finished in a time of 12.06s better than the 12.12s she ran in the semis.

“The goal was to come out and to win this gold,” the 25-year-old, who was born in the town of Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, said.

“I just did it. Honestly, I believe in my abilities but I was not expecting a world record at these championships. You know, the goal is always just to execute well and get the win. So the world record is a bonus. I knew I had it in me but I could not believe it when I saw it on the screen after the semis. But it was just a matter of time.”

Amusan, the current Commonwealth Champion, beat Jamaica’s Britany Anderson who finished second and Olympic Champion from Cuba, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who came third.
