Commonwealth Games: Amusan qualifies for 100m hurdles final
New world record holder of the women’s 100m hurdles, Tobi Amusan, on Friday qualified for the final of the women’s 100m hurdles at the ongoing Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Amusan raced to a massive 12.40s to dominate Round 1 Heat 3 to qualify for Sunday’s final.
The world champion has the chance to defend her Commonwealth Games title, which she won in 2018 in Gold Coast, Australia.
Still, she will have to fend off competition from Jamaican duo Danielle Williams, Megan Tapper, England’s Cindy Sembre, Michelle Jenneke of Australia, and Devynne Charlton of Bahamas.
It would be recalled that Amusan won gold medal in the event four years ago in Gold Coast, Australia.
