Oluwatobiloba Ayomide Amusan has won a gold medal in the women 100 metres hurdles at the ongoing Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia.
This victory has increased the number of Nigeria’s medal to eight gold, five silver, and five bronze.
The 20-year-old athlete raced to cross the line in 12.68 seconds making her the first Nigerian to win the title at the 2018 Commonwealth games.
Nigeria has earlier recorded victory in shot-put, para-sport, table-tennis, and others at the on-going sports event.
She was the runner-up at the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 100 m hurdles running a windy 12.79 s. Amusan also competed at the 2016 World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz. Despite running her second fastest time ever, she placed fifth in the final.
