Tobi Amusan gets N65m for breaking World Record at World Athletics Championships

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan walked away with a cheque of $100,000 for breaking the World record in the women’s 100m hurdles event in Eugene, Oregon.

Amusan won the final in a wind-assisted time of 12.06s better than the 12.12s she ran in the semis. The time was later ruled ineligible as the wind speed exceeded the legal limit.

Amusan who is the current Commonwealth Champion beat Jamaica’s Britany Anderson who finished second and Olympic Champion from Cuba, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who came third.

World Athletics on it’s Twitter handles wrote: “Continuing to put our pledges towards greater gender equality into practice. #WeGrowAthletics by proudly funding the women’s world record programme at #WorldAthleticsChamps.”
