Oregon 2022: Amusan Wins Gold In 100mH, Brume Claims Silver In  Long Jump

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan made history by winning gold medal in the Women’s 100m Hurdles on the final day of 2022 World Athletics Championships in Oregon, United States of America, reports Completesports.com.

Amusan is the first African and Nigerian to achieve feat.

The Nigerian girl crossed the line with a scorching 12.06s (+2.5m/s) which would have been her second World Record (WR) of the evening but for the excess wind.

Jamaican Britany Anderson came second in
12.23s, while Olympic Champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn settled for Bronze with the same time.

    Waooo!!!! These are SUPER WOMEN, congrats to them

  • Massive performance from the two ladies, Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume.
    What a massive shoving off the World Record in a single day!

    First a blistering 12.12s to register the authentic and recognised World Record in the Semi Final 100mH race. The whole world was agape at the feat, and some sceptics had to check the “Wind reading” repeatedly and it was very legal- Tobi Amusan, Nigeria 12.12s, New world Record displayed on the World Screen.

    Celebrations by Tobi of the new World Record was muted because She has the finals and search for Nigerian first Gold to contend with. And cometh the Final, cometh the lady of the moment, Tobi Amusan and to prove it was no fluke- the WR in the Semi final- Tobi obliterated a talent packed field, including former WR holder Kendra Harrison of USA and Olympic Champion Camachio Quinn, in a time of 12.06s (Wind aided) to claim a Historic Gold medal for Nigeria, the first African to ever win Gold in the event.

    And massive congratulations to Ese Brume for her Leap of 7.02m to claim her first Silver medal in the event. She had won Bronze medal (the only medal Nigeria won at the World Championship) at Doha WAC in 2019 and also last year at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Any other Long Jump leap of that lenght could have won the event, but for Germany’s Mikambo leap of 7.12m to claim the Gold.

    Congatulations to the 2 ladies and Weldone Team Nigeria for a huge improvements from previous outing. Gloria Nigeriana!

        As long as she has the first record of 12.12s we have no problem ,and the second stands as championship record but will not be recorded for world. What I’m confident about is that she will still break that 12.06 at the Diamond league so they shouldn’t think they’ll kill joy for long.

        • MAJOR FLEX 2 years ago

          Indeed brother, and no Matter what, it would still be in unofficial history that she tan 22.06, what a lady, tobk amazon

  • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

    Girl broke the record twice in a night and earned over 200,000usd plus Nigeria’s solidarity Gold in the WAC. What a performance she could have done a sub 12 if the starting was accurate. She’s a Legend and gave Camacho Qinn no chance despite late start. She’s been grounded God bless Tobi Amusan for being a great representative in all ramification.

  • I watched both races and I must congratulate Amusan for making Nigeria proud on the world stage. I have always been heart broken the previous times she had missed out of the ultimate prize of gold but thank God she did it this time and doing it in a special way, breaking the world record. Watching her shed tears of joy when our national anthem was being played was glorious. I just could not hold back. Tears came from my eyes, too.
    I, also watched Ese Brume’s jump, and I think she did splendid. The gold will surely come one day for her, and who knows maybe with the world record, too.
    God bless Nigeria

    God bless these great athletes. We have world class athletes, scientists, economists, doctors, lawyers, jurists, engineers etc but bad leaders.

  • Sunnyb 2 years ago

    Patrick, I’m sorry bro without bloody revolution these bad leaders will continue to hold us hostage. I cried  yesterday seeing Tobi performance, I know the official will try and steal the money given to young girl. What a country.  

  • Proud of these two ladies for their wonderful achievements in their respective events. Wishing them and other Nigerian athletes all the best in their future endeavors!

  • What a meaningful victory. She proved that nothing is impossible, if we are determined enough. In addition, this victory also enhances the status of women in this society
