Nigeria’s athlete Oluwatobiloba Amusan has broken a 20-year-old African Games record, previously held by another Nigerian, Gloria Alozie.
Tobiloba Amusan on Wednesday set a new Games Record when she won the 100m Hurdles event with a time of 12.68secs, a 20-year-old record previously held by Gloria.
The previous record set by Alozie was 12.74secs during the 1999 edition of the African Games.
The 22 -year -old won gold in the Women’s 100m final of the 12th Africa Games at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Complex in Morocco, to retain her title.
After her latest feat, Amusan said she was glad to have won although the race was quite rough.
“I am happy I won the race which is the most important thing, but it was a kind of rough race for me,”
