Amusan becomes the first team in history to win the Diamond League three years in a row

Posted by

Tobi Amusan, a Nigerian athlete, won the women’s 100-meter hurdles in the Eugene Diamond League to capture her third straight Diamond League crown.

After losing her global title last month in Budapest, Hungary against Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, Keni Harrison, and Danielle Williams, Amusan has come back strong and defeated all of them.

The 26-year-old ran a personal best of 12.33 seconds to win the race.

Second place went to Puerto Rico’s Camacho-Quinn (12.38 seconds), and third place went to America’s Harrison (12.44 seconds).

Amusan follows in the footsteps of Dawn Harper-Nelson, who won the 100-meter hurdles event at the Diamond League in 2012, 2023, and 2014.

Ese Brume, another Nigerian, placed second in the Long Jump competition.

Brume came in second place, behind Ivana Vuleta of Serbia.
