Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has emerged as the winner of the Diamond League trophy for an astonishing third consecutive time.
On Sunday night in Oregon, Amusan with a time of 12.33s emerged the winner of the fiercely contested 100m hurdles event to shut her critics after a disappointing outing in Budapest.
Amusan with Sunday’s remarkable performance made history as the second woman in Diamond League history after Dawn Nelson-Harper to win a hat-trick of 100m hurdles titles.
Interestingly, it was in Oregon where Amusan won the world title last year and also set a world record in the process.
For Sunday’s race, the hard-charging Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico finished second in 12.38s while American Keni Harrison was third in 12.44s.
Danielle Williams of Jamaica who dethroned Amusan in Budapest finished fourth in 12.47s.
The athletic season has been a torrid one for Amusan but she emphatically proved on Sunday she is arguably the best sprint hurdler in the world.
The sweet victory in Oregon brings a triumphant close to what has been a difficult summer for Amusan.
