BREAKING: Amusan does it again, wins gold at C’Wealth


World champion, Tobi Amusan has won gold in the final of the Women’s 100m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
Amusan was one of the favourites to get the gold at the tournament following her impressive showing at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, USA which saw her break multiple records to win Nigeria’s first gold at the World Championships.
Having done it on another continent, Amusan made sure to replicate that fine display in Europe proving that it was no fluke and that it is indeed her time.
The 25-year-old ran a blistering 12.30secs to claim the gold and also set a new Games Record in Birmingham.
Coming up behind here were Bahamas’ Devynne Charlton (12.58secs) who took silver and England’s Cindy Sember (12.59secs) who took bronze with both some notable distance behind the eventual winner.
With this result, Nigeria has now won 10 gold medals and 31 medals in total.
Team Nigeria is now just one behind the gold medal record set by the 1994 team (11 gold) at the Commonwealth Games and six behind the total medal record (37 medals).
With seven competitions still holding potential for gold for the team on the final day and World Athletics Championship silver medallist Ese Brume still in competition later today, Nigeria can and will hope for more.
