Tobi Amusan sets new world record at Silesia Diamond League 100m hurdles



World Record holder, Tobi Amusan, has gained a victory in the Silesia Diamond League Women’s 100m Hurdles while also breaking the meet record after finishing the race at 12.34 seconds.

American Kendra Harrison came a close second after Amusan caught up with her in a nail-biting race to the finish line.

Newly crowned US champion Nia Ali came third in 12.38s while Jamaican champion Megan Tapper finished fourth ahead of her compatriot Danielle Williams in fifth.

It was the fastest time this season for the Nigeria sprint icon, equalling Jasmine Camacho-Quinn’s MR.

The record catapults her to the top of the Diamond League standings where she is seven points ahead of Camacho-Quinn, who for the first time, didn’t feature in a Diamond League meet this season.
