Tobi Amusan successfully defends his Commonwealth 100m hurdles title

Tobi Amusan successfully defends his Commonwealth 100m hurdles title

Tobi Amusan of Nigeria has won gold in the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The world champion successfully defended her title in the women’s 100m hurdles final at Alexander Stadium on Sunday.

Amusan set a Games record of 12.30 seconds while also breaking other records, becoming the first world champion to win gold and the first Nigerian athlete to do so.

Following her impressive performance at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon, the United States, where she broke multiple records to win Nigeria’s first gold medal at the World Championships, Amusan was one of the tournament’s favorites.

Having accomplished this feat on another continent, Amusan made certain to replicate it in Europe, demonstrating that it was no fluke and that it was indeed her time.

The 25-year-old set a new Games Record in Birmingham by winning gold in 12.30 seconds.

“Honestly, I believe in my abilities but I was not expecting a world record at these championships.

“The goal is always just to execute well and get the win. So the world record is a bonus. I knew I had it in me but I could not believe it when I saw it on the screen after the semis.

“Before the final, I just tried to stay calm and to do my best. I took a deep breath knowing that I have some goals to accomplish and it worked pretty well. I knew it was very fast but not this fast,” Amusan said after her final victory.

Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas (12.58 seconds), who won silver, and Cindy Sember of England (12.59 seconds), who won bronze, came in close behind the eventual winner.

Nigeria now has 31 medals overall and 10 gold medals after this outcome.

The 1994 team’s record of 11 gold medals at the Commonwealth Games is now only one behind, and Team Nigeria is six behind the record for total medals (37 medals).

Nigeria can and will hope for more because Ese Brume, who won silver at the World Athletics Championship, is still competing later today and seven competitions still have a chance to bring the team gold on the final day.
