World record holder in the women’s 100m hurdles event, Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan finished a disappointing 6th in the Women’s 100m hurdles final Thursday night at the World Athletics Championship in Budapest, Hungary reports Prime Business Africa.
The race was won by Danielle Williams of Jamaica in a season’s best time of 12.43 seconds.
Jasmine Camacho-Quinn took the silver medal as she finished just one second behind the winner for an incredible finish line while Britain’s Keni Harrison ran a time of 12.46 seconds to emerge the third-placed hurdler on the podium place.
Amusan who was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit before that decision was rescinded started off the blocks on a noticeably slow note.
