Nigerian track star Tobi Amusan secured her third consecutive Diamond League championship in the women’s 100m hurdles. Her season-best time of 12.33 seconds edged out top rivals at the Eugene meet.
Despite recently losing her world title in Budapest, Amusan made a triumphant comeback against a stacked field including Olympic champ Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico and American Keni Harrison.
Camacho-Quinn crossed second in 12.38 seconds, while Harrison took third in 12.44. With the win, Amusan joins an exclusive club as the second woman to achieve a three-peat in the prestigious Diamond League 100m hurdles.
In another strong showing for Nigeria, Ese Brume claimed second in the long jump behind Serbia’s Ivana Vuleta.
After falling short at the World Championships, Amusan’s dominant Eugene performance reestablishes her as the pacesetter in the 100m hurdles. She will look to carry this momentum through the rest of the Diamond League season as she eyes more gold in 2023.
