Nigeria’s Oluwatobiloba Amusan has successfully defended her 100m hurdles title at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Amusan also set  a new 12.30s Games record in the process.

The 25-year-old makes history as the first Nigerian track and field athlete to successfully defend a Commonwealth Games 100m hurdles title.

It would be recalled that Amusan recently won gold medal and set a new record at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Oregon, United States of America.

Team Nigeria have now won 10 medals at Birmingham 2022.

It is one short of the 11 won in 1994, 2010 and 2014.
