Tobi Amusan Wins Gold At Commonwealth Games, sets new record

Nigerian superstar Tobi Amusan has set a new record to win a Gold medal in the 100 meters hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the United Kingdom.

The 25-year-old Amusan recorded a time of 12.30 seconds to set a new record at the Commonwealth Games.

In Birmingham Amusan took Gold, Jamaica’s Britany Anderson took silver with 12.23sec, while Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico claimed bronze in 12.23.

After her 12.12 heroics in Oregon, Amusan produced another astonishing performance to claim Gold.

Speaking after her victory Amusan said, “Honestly, I believe in my abilities but I was not expecting a world record at these championships.

“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.

“Before the final, I just tried to stay calm and to do my best. I took a deep breath knowing that I have some goals to accomplish and it worked pretty well. I knew it was very fast but not this fast.”

Amusan now holds the World record, Commonwealth Games record and African record in the women's 100 meter hurdles.
