Tobi Amusan, the world record holder, achieved a stunning victory in the Silesia Diamond League Women’s 100m Hurdles, breaking the meet record with a finishing time of 12.34 seconds.
In a thrilling race to the finish line, Amusan overtook American Kendra Harrison, who came in a close second. Newly crowned US champion Nia Ali secured third place in 12.38 seconds, while Jamaican champion Megan Tapper finished fourth ahead of her compatriot Danielle Williams in fifth.
Amusan’s remarkable performance not only secured her victory but also marked the fastest time of the season for the Nigerian sprint icon, matching Jasmine Camacho-Quinn’s meet record.
With this record-breaking achievement, Amusan now sits at the top of the Diamond League standings, leading by seven points ahead of Camacho-Quinn, who did not participate in a Diamond League meet this season for the first time.
Following her recent win at the Diamond League meeting in Stockholm, Amusan’s triumph in Silesia marks her second consecutive Diamond League victory this season as she continues her preparations for a third successful title defense.
