Nigerian athlete and world record holder, Tobi Amusan dominated the women’s 100m hurdles at the ISTAF 2022 Berlin meeting on Sunday, winning in a time of 12.45 seconds.
The meet is part of the World Athletics Continental Tour Silver level series.
Amusan entered Sunday’s race on the back of a second-place performance at the 2022 Lausanne Diamond League meeting last month, but said she was confident of bouncing back at the Olympic Stadium this weekend.
The Nigerian standout got off to a strong start to build a sizable lead and then powered away to secure the victory.
She hit the last hurdle and was pictured limping at the end of the race, even minutes after her celebrations. But, the world champion revealed afterward that she was okay and is now looking forward to her next competition at the 2022 Wanda Diamond League final in Zurich later this week.
Amusan said after her victory: “It has been a long season, but I am still alive. I just wanted to finish strong today. I was here to execute.
“I need to work on what I need to work on, but it is alright. There is always room for improvement. I need to improve my start and my finish.
“I will race again in Zurich. Today we had a great competitive field. My goal was to focus on myself.”
