Nigerian hurdler and World champion Tobi Amusan showed her class on Sunday at the 2023 Diamond League athletics series in Stockholm, Sweden, to win the 100m hurdles in a time of 12.52 seconds despite the wet conditions on the track.

The 26-year-old world record holder came second in the first leg of the Diamond League series in Lausanne, Switzerland last Friday.

“I am excited to be out here competing and it is great to get the win on the back of Lausanne (silver),” Amusan said.

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.

Amusan is the defending champion in the Women’s 100m hurdles.

The Nigerian hurdler won the title in 2021 and 2022.

Amusan is also currently the African, Commonwealth and world champion in the event.
