NewsNigeriaSportTobi Amusan Wins Third Gold in African Games
Nigerian sprint hurdler Tobi Amusan continued her dominance in Africa, securing a remarkable third consecutive gold medal in the women’s 100m hurdles at the ongoing African Games in Ghana.
The race, held on Wednesday, saw Amusan clock an impressive time of 12.89 seconds, leaving her closest competitors Mozambique’s Sidoane Fiadanantsoaso and Ashley Tinashe of Zimbabwe in the dust.
Fiadanantsoaso and Tinashe took the silver and bronze medals, respectively.
Amusan’s victory wasn’t without its initial hiccup. The first race attempt witnessed a false start scare, which could have resulted in her disqualification, but the officials decided to go easy on her and issued her a yellow card instead.
This win further cements Amusan’s status as the queen of African hurdling. With three consecutive African Games gold medals to her name, she has solidified her position as a force to be reckoned with on the continental stage.
The 26-year-old earlier won gold in the 2015 African Games in Brazzaville and in Rabat 2019.
