Team Nigeria’s hopes of a first medal at the Tokyo Olympics was dashed after Tobi Amusan placed fourth in the women’s 100m hurdles final in the early hours of Monday, Completesports.com reports.
Going into the final with a personal best 12.48, the 24-year-old running in lane six, crossed the finishing line with a time of 12.60.
Unfortunately, it was not enough to earn her a place on the podium.
