Nigeria’s track star, Tobi Amusan, clinched a win in the 100m hurdles at the Eugene, Oregon Diamond League competition. This marks her third straight Diamond League title.

Amusan clocked a season-best time of 12.33 seconds to win the women’s 100m hurdles, while American competitor Kendra Harrison secured a third-place finish.
