0 489

Nigerian athlete Tobi Amusan ran to an impressive time of 12.52s to win the Women’s 100m Hurdles event at the Stockholm Diamond League, as the World Record holder continues her fine form this season in preparation for the World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

Sarah Lavin of Ireland clocked a personal best of 12.73s to finish second, while Pia Skrzyszowska of Poland finished third in a time of 12.78s.

Amusan, who finished second in the 100m hurdles event at the Lausanne Diamond League on Friday, was determined to go all the way by claiming victory in Stockholm.

This was Amusan’s first Diamond League win of the year and she also set a new stadium record in the process. The Nigerian is the current world record holder in the 100m hurdles and she is one of the favourites to win gold at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Athletes are awarded points instead of medals for competing in each leg of the Diamond League series.

The top eight athletes in each event at the end of all the legs will qualify for the Diamond League Final, where they will compete for the trophy. 

The competition in Stockholm was the seventh event of the Diamond League 2023 season. The Diamond League 2023 series will wrap up with the two-day final in Eugene, USA on September 16th and 17th.
