Nigeria’s golden girl Tobi Amusan causes stir after world record win at World Athletics Championships

A shocked Amusan broke a world record, and later bagged a gold for Nigeria.

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has caused a stir after smashing a world record in the women’s 100-meter hurdles in the semifinals at the World Championships this Sunday.

Amusan came in with a record time of 12.12 seconds, beating Kendra Harrison’s 2016 record of 12.20 by 0.8 of a second.
She went on to bag gold in the final, though her initial finishing time of 12.06 was ruled out due to strong wind speeds.
