World record holder Tobi Amusan has emerged winner of the women’s 100 meters hurdles at the ISTAF 2022 Berlin meeting on September 4, 2022, winning in a time of 12.45 seconds.
The meet is part of the World Athletics Continental Tour Silver level series.
Tobi entered the race on the back of a second-place performance at the 2022 Lausanne Diamond League meeting last month, but said she was confident of bouncing back at the Olympic Stadium this weekend.
The Nigerian standout got off to a strong start to build a sizable lead and then powered away to secure the victory.
American two-time world junior champion Tia Jones finished strongly over the closing barriers to take second place with a time of 12.58 seconds while Olympic bronze medalist Megan Tapper of Jamaica was pushed back into third place in 12.66 seconds.
“It has been a long season, but I am still alive. I just wanted to finish strong today. I was here to execute.
I need to work on what I need to work on, but it is alright. There is always room for improvement. I need to improve my start and my finish.
I will race again in Zurich (2022 Wanda Diamond League final). Today we had a great competitive field. My goal was to focus on myself.”
Amusan won the world title in Oregon in July with the fastest time in any conditions at 12.06 seconds, hours after running 12.12 seconds to set the current world record in the semi-final.
