Tobiloba Amusan is proud of her performance at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, despite failing to claim a medal in the 100m hurdles event, Completesports.com reports.
Amusan failed to fulfil expectations as she came short at the final hurdle to become the second Nigerian woman to win a 100m hurdles medal at the championships.
She was one of the favourites heading into the final, after winning her heat with a personal best of 12.48s , a time that stands as the fastest ever done in a women’s 100m hurdles heat at the World Championships.
The petite athlete replicated that performance in the semifinals, finishing on top ahead of other competitors.
Amusan however finished in fourth position in the final behind the trio of Nia Ali, Kendra Harrison and Danielle Williams.
” I’m glad to come out here and execute the plan and reaching the final, held it down, fourth place is the worst you want to be, regardless I give thanks to God…it’s a life lesson,” Amusan told reporters after the race in Doha, Qatar.
