At the 2020 Folksam GP in Stockholm, Tobi Amusan continued her impressive form as she won the 60 metres hurdle final clocking a time of 8.16 seconds.

Amusan has had a fine 2020 season so far and has the second fastest time in the world over the 60metres hurdle.

Prior to Stockholm, Amusan had started the season with a time of 7.87s clocking the second fastest time ever run by an African at the Martin Luther King Jr. Invitational in Albuquerque where she powered to a Personal Best (PB) of 7.87s to finish second in the women’s 60m hurdle behind Kendra Harrison who won the race in 7.81s.

She had won also the 60 metres hurdle at the world indoor tour in Karlsruhe where she clocked an impressive lifetime best of 7.84s.

She later ran at PSD Bank Meeting Final, Dusseldorf (Germany) coming third in 7.96 seconds and came second in ORLEN Copernicus Cup Final, Torun (Poland) with a time of 7.89 seconds some days ago.

The Nigeria star hurdler will now set her eyes on the World Athletics Indoor Tour in Glasgow this weekend, where she’ll target another famous win to top the 60metres Hurdle standings.

Also at the Orlen Cup in Łódź, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi hurled a throw of 20.87m to finish third in the men’s Shot Put.

The event was won by World Leader, Konrad Bukowiecki who got out to 21.54m, with only two legal attempts recorded for him while Michal Haratyk was secondnd with 20.95m.

Enekwechi had finished fourth at the Orlen Copernicus Cup final with a 21.04 metres throw some days ago, the same feat he achieved as he opened his season with a 20.37 metres throw at the Athletics Indoor Tour in Düsseldorf.
