The new golden girl of Nigerian Athletics, Tobi Amusan, has put smiles on the faces of Nigerians again by winning another trophy.

The Ogun State-born athlete won the women’s 100m hurdles event at the Diamond League final in Zurich, Switzerland, in grand style.

She broke a 22-year-old meeting record that has been untouchable for many years when she clocked 12.29s on Thursday evening to defend the trophy she won last year.
