It was Amusan's second straight C-USA weekly honour.

The Nigerian clocked the fastest-qualifying time (12.75) in the 100m hurdles at the Texas Relays. On Saturday, Amusan shaved .03 seconds (12.72) off her preliminary time to defend her Texas Relays title, while also breaking the meet record set by Ashlee Williams (12.83) in 2005. The hurdler continues to hold the No.1 spot nationally with her 12.63 seconds lifetime best registered last week at the UTEP Springtime meet.
