Tobi Amusan became the first Nigerian ever to win gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.06s.

 

Amusan’s victory, will for her, be some sort of compensation for a disappointing outing in Tokyo last year where she finished fourth in the final despite being touted to take one of the medals.

 

She walks away with a $100,000 prize money and will now turn her attention to the Commonwealth Games beginning on Thursday, July 28 where she’s also the defending champion in the event.
