    Sad to say that Amusan might not defend her title tomorrow after watching her struggle against the Jamaican before making it to the finals. The distractions caused by AIU and IAAF is taking a toil on her, I pray for miraculous strength to see her through tomorrow. To our sports ministry it is sad that all you do is politics and not caring about the welfare of Athletes. I also witnessed Favor Ofili wobbling in a race that she should not be struggling judging by her SB and PB compared to the rest of the field in her heat.
