Tobi Amusan can’t hide her excitement after winning the 100m hurdles event at the Silesia Diamond League event on Sunday night.
PROMPT NEWS reports that the 26-year-old won the race with a time of 12.34s.
It was a new meeting record and her personal best in the 100m hurdles this year.
Amusan struggled early this year but now appears to be getting back to her best.
The Nigerian reflected on her performance in the race.
“I would not say that I executed, but the second part of the race was really good. I am most definitely building up for the World Championships, extremely satisfied with my season best- one step at a time,” Amusan was quoted by Making of Champions.
“I take it one step after the next. I knew it was going to be a battle until the finish line. I am happy to compete against the best. I am just out here doing well, I would not say that I am the best. I came out there, I was not feeling too good.”
“It was not easy for me with injuries in my hamstring and my knee. But I trusted in my coach & my work. It’s all about the process. I just won this in a smooth style, I was just running. Honestly, I had no idea that I won when I crossed the finish line.”
