Tobi Amusan proved the great form she’s in once again, producing another brilliant performance at the ISTAF in Berlin today, where she convincingly won in 12.51s.
Regarded as the queen of African 100m hurdles She went to Rabat as Pre-Championship favourite and she delivered.
She successfully defended her title by outclassing the field with a time of 12.68s.
Despite winning women’s 100m Hurdles in 12.68s in Rabat, Tobi was not impressed with the time: “not really, I feel like I could have gone faster”, and yesterday she improved on that time.
Amusan had a Personal Best of 12.49 seconds which she got in July at the Meeting Pro Athlé Tour de Sotteville les Rouen in Sotteville, France.
The feat makes her the second African woman to break 12.50 seconds in the event after Alozie who ran 12.44 seconds in 1998.
In 16 months, she has won Commonwealth Games, African Champs & African Games titles for Nigeria.
Amusan is billed to travel to Brussels on Friday as she attempts to become the first Nigerian to win the IAAF Diamond League title, a feat her compatriot, Blessing Okagbare failed to do in Zurich last week.
She stands presently in the ranking currently as the fourth fastest 100 metres hurdler this year and faces the formidable Jamaican, Danielle Williams, the current world leader with 12.32 seconds and U.S.’s world record holder, Kendra Harisson, who holds a personal season’s best of 12.43 seconds.
