On Thursday, Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan said she will come back stronger  next year following her defeat in the world women’s 100m hurdles crown to Jamaica’s Danielle Williams in Budapest.

She made her determination known in an interview with journalists after the game where she said, it was quite “a journey getting into the final” despite all she had gone through in the last couple of weeks.
