Nigeria’s golden girl, Tobi Amusan has successfully defended her Commonwealth Games 100m hurdles title after crusing to the first position on Sunday at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, UK.

Tobi finished in a time of 12.30s to set a new Games Record and also secure Nigeria’s 10th gold medal in what has been an amazing year.
A 2.4 m/s tailwind denied Amusan the chance of breaking the Games Record in the semi-final.

However, there was no stopping the World Record holder as she breezed to a time of 12.30s to eclipse the 16-year-old 12.65 seconds Games record set by Jamaica’s Brigitte Foster-Hylton in Melbourne, Australia.

Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas came second while Briton Cindy Sember who celebrated her 28th birthday with a win in the semis settled for the bronze.

Speaking to reporters after her win, Tobi said even though she set a new Games Record, she did not have a properly executed race.

Only a few weeks ago, 25-year-old Amusan broke the World Record with her 12.12 seconds semi-final win before going on to win the world title in Oregon with 12.06s wind-aided time.
