Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan early Monday set a World Record, twice, to win the 100m hurdles in style at the World Championships.

Her victory and another great performance by Ese Brume meant that after labouring all week long with nothing tangible to show for their efforts, Team Nigeria ended their campaign at the World Championships in Oregon on a spectacular note; winning a gold and a silver medal on the final day of action.

The duo of Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume produced the medals for Nigeria and they did it in style Oregon with jaw-breaking performances.

Amusan set the World Record twice before she was crowned the world champion in the 100m hurdles while Brume needed to dig deep for her silver in the long jump.

PREMIUM TIMES reports that after improving on her African Record during the heats, many knew Amusan would be on to bigger things in the semi-final but not the World Record

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has won a Gold medal in the Women’s 100m Hurdles at the World Athletics Championships, after breaking the world record with a time of 12.06 seconds.

In the semi-final, Amusan delivered an extraordinary time; clocking 12.12secs to obliterate the former World Record of 12.20secs held by Keni Harrison of the United States since 2016.

“I wanted to get out and go,” said Amusan after the race. “I did what I had to do.”

While that was amazing in itself, Amusan was not yet done as she improved on the World Record in her final race some hours later; winning in 12.06secs to become the first Nigerian World Champion ever
