How Amusan won
Amusan won the award with eighty-nine votes ahead of Ejiro Otarigho, a tanker driver who drove a burning fuel tanker away from a residential area at Agbarho in Delta State, and Daniel Amah, a Policeman who rejected the sum of $200,000 bribe from armed robbery suspects in Kano State.
Summary of Amusan's 2022 season
The 25-year-old 100m Hurdler attained several historical feats in 2022, becoming the first Nigerian athlete to run a World Record (WR) and also winning World, Commonwealth, Diamond League, and African titles in a season, setting record-breaking times in the process.
The award was presented to Amusan's manager, Lanre Vigo, on Thursday afternoon at EKO FM's General Manager's office, Olajide Lawal, who advised Amusan not to rest on her oars.
He also said the award would motivate the athlete to continue producing brilliant performances in international athletics competitions.
