Despite a False Start, Nigeria’s new ‘Queen of Tracks’ Tobi Amusan crossed the finish line in 12.89 seconds to win the Women’s 100m hurdles, ahead of Madagascar’s Sidonie Fiadanantsoa (13.19) and Zimbabwe’s Kamangirira Ashley Tinashe (13.59), reports OwoSports.com.ng.

Following her triumphs in Brazzaville 2015, Rabat 2019, and Accra 2023, the world record holder extends her record of being the only athlete to have won it more than twice.
Meanwhile, Amusan also led Nigeria’s quartet to their 11th gold medal in 13 editions of the women’s 4×100 meters relay at the African Games after finishing in 43.05 seconds, just 0.01 seconds short of the game record set by the country in 2003.
They finished ahead of Liberia (44.02) and host Ghana (44.21).
