After winning the Diamond League for the third time in a row, Tobi Amusan had some time to think.
On Sunday, the world record holder in the women’s 100-meter hurdles also won the Oregon Diamond League.
In 2021 and 2022, the Nigerian repeated as champion.
Amusan clocked a personal best of 12.33 seconds to win the race.
As the 26-year-old followed in the footsteps of Serbia’s Ivana Vuleta, who had previously won the Diamond League 100m women’s hurdles title in 2012, 2013, and 2014, she became the second athlete to accomplish the feat.
Even though Amusan didn’t win the global title at the global Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary last month, she still had a fantastic year overall.
Following his victory, the 26-year-old remarked, “I came out here and said it’s my race to lose and I will give my best. It’s two hundred dollars or nothing, I said, because there’s no way I’ll win today. So I came out here and begged God to help me.
To race in Eugene is to race on God’s track. I thought, “This is my track; I will dominate it,” when I arrived, and God obliged.
I really need to get some sleep right now. All I can say during this holiday season is thank you, God. I want to thank my coach, my family, and everyone who has cheered me on this year for my victory. I’m simply grateful that it’s over because it was a tough one.
