Gail Devers’ record, which had stood since 2000, was broken by Amusan. The Nigerian entered the competition to defend the crown she had won in 2021.
The Nigerian entered the event already having established a world record time in the just finished World Championship. She currently holds two records: a 12.12-second world record and a new 12.29-second Diamond League record.
“They are not going to catch her, are they?” How can you can you catch someone whose new acronym is EXPRESS….Tobi Amusan was absolutely flying and we loved every bit of this race. Putting Nigeria 🇳🇬 on the global map yet again 🙌
