Amusan Clinches Fourth Consecutive National 100m Hurdles Title

Tobi Amusan claimed her fourth consecutive national title in the women’s 100 metres hurdles event at the national Olympic trials in Benin, Edo state on Monday.

Amusan was way ahead of her competitors in a one-sided final as she powered home in a time of 12.78 seconds.

Amusan claimed victory at the Olympic trials in Lagos in 2021 before winning twice in Benin in the last two years.

Amusan is the current world record holder in the 100 metres hurdles with a time of 12.12 seconds which she set at the 2022 women’s 100 metres hurdles semi final in Eugene Oregon.

In the women’s 100 meters at the Olympic trials in Benin, Favour Ofili won the national title and also an automatic qualification for the Paris 2024 Olympic games.

Ofili clocked a season-best of 11.06 seconds to finish ahead of Olayinka Olajide, who came second in 11.37 seconds, and Justina Eyakpobeyan in third.

The men’s 100 metres final went to Kanyinsola Ajayi with a blistering 10.14 seconds.

Ajayi defeated Alaba Akintola, who clocked 10.16 seconds, and Usheoritse Itsekiri, who finished second and third.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi won his fourth consecutive men’s shot put national title.

He only needed three attempts to his 21.37 meters mark which his opponents failed to surpass.
