Tobi Amusan, the current Commonwealth and global champion in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, has expressed enthusiasm and joy with her most recent ranking, which World Athletics revealed on Friday evening. Amusan, who was rated 43rd in September 2021, has climbed 38 positions to become the fifth-ranked athlete in the world, while her countrywoman Ese Brume has climbed 32 spots, from 93rd to 61st, during the same time period.
Both athletes had outstanding years, achieving incredible results in every international competition they took part in.
Amusan successfully defended her Commonwealth Games title in Birmingham after setting a new record in the 100-meter hurdles with a run of 12.12 seconds at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon. She earned a gold medal for Nigeria earlier this year in Mauritius at the African Senior Athletics Championships. At the World Athletics Championships, Brume took home a silver medal in the long jump, and at the Commonwealth Games, he won gold.
At the presidential event held on Thursday at the State House, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, the Federal Government honored both athletes for their outstanding contributions to the nation.
