National trials: Amusan wins again

World record holder, Tobi Amusan, on Wednesday retained her national title after storming across the finish line in a smooth 12.70secs under the rain to win the women’s 100m hurdles event at the national trials for the 2023 world athletics championships, which holds next month in Budapest, Hungary.

Amusan was competing in Nigeria for the first time since setting the world record of 12.12s last year in Oregon and she gave the fans inside the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium in Benin City a feel of her expertise as she eased into the final of the event.

Coming off the back of a win at the Stockholm diamond league, the world champion is now on course to defend her title in Budapest next month.
