WORLD champion 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.
Amusan began the 2022 season in fine form, winning the 2022 Diamond League event in Paris, where she set an African record by 0.01s with a time of 12.41s.
Ese Brume and Ruth Usoro also secured their place in the women’s long jump final.
Brume who competed in Group A finished second with a jump of 6.81m behind Ghana’s Deborah Acquah who topped the group with a jump of 8.85m.
Usoro who competed in Group B finished third with a jump of 6.56m to qualify for the final.
The finals of the women’s 100m hurdles and long jump will take place on Sunday, August 7 at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.
