Tobi Amusan smashes the African Record in Paris

The 2018 Commonwealth Games 100m hurdle champion, Tobi Amusan, smashed the African championship record last night at the Paris Diamond League Meeting held in Paris, France.

Amusan, who narrowly missed a medal at the Tokyo Olympics, started slowly in yesterday’s Diamond league in Paris, but picked up midway to erase the old African record of 12’86 that she set in 2018 in Asaba with a new record and a personal best of 12.41 seconds.

With the new African record in her kitty, Amusan will surely be one of the athletes to watch at the 2022 World Athletics Championship in Oregon, U.S. next month and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England from July 28 to August 8.
