Africa’s and World’s 100m hurdles champion, Tobi Amusan, on Tuesday evening continued her imperious form ahead of the 2023 World Athletics Championship in Budapest, reports Prime Business Africa.

The queen of the hurdles won her second international race at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial meet in Hungary with an impressive 12.35s (-0.5).

The feat on Tuesday was close to her Silesia Diamond League Meeting Record of 12.34s, to finish ahead of US champion Nia Ali in 12.41s and her compatriot Alaysha Johnson in 12.51s.

Amusan expectedly picked one of the slots available for the Athletics World Championship during the trials at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium in Benin City two weeks ago.
