Tobi Amusan, the Nigerian sprint queen, won the Diamond League, and the Nigerian Olympic Committee (NOC) is ecstatic for her.
On Sunday evening, Amusan was in first place in the Oregon Diamond League.
The current record holder in the women’s 100-meter hurdles also won the event in 2021 and ’22.
Amusan clocked in at a season-best 12.33 seconds to take first place.
Habu Ahmed Gumel, president of the NOC, responded by praising Amusan’s dedication to the cause.
In a statement of congratulations, Gumel added, “Your triumph in the face of adversity, in particular, is inspiring.” This message was released by Tony Nezianya, Public Relations Officer, NOC.
“Many thanks for keeping your eye on the prize and proving to be the undisputed victor in the end. Your commitment, tenacity, and unrelenting effort are admirable qualities.
It’s safe to assume that many young athletes will take heart from your success and work hard to attain their goals.
You have pushed Nigeria to new heights, and your success is a source of immense pride for the whole country.
