Nigerian sprinter and world champion Tobi Amusan on Sunday added a gold to her medal collections after winning the 100m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in  Birmingham. 
The hurdler recently won the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, setting a new world record 13.12secs in the process.
Amusan returned in 12.30secs in Birmingham on Sunday morning to successfully defend the title she won four years ago at the last edition of the Games in Gold Coast, Australia.
With the feat, the 25-year-old also became the first world champion to win gold in the event.
She’s also the first Nigerian athlete to be crowned champion at all levels of athletics in the same year.
Team Nigeria remain sixth place on the medals table on Day 10 of the Commonwealth Games with 10 gold, eight silver and 13 bronze medals.
They will now be looking to add to their medal haul in the women’s 4X100m relay final.
