Tobiloba Amusan through to the semis after an impressive run of form

Tobilola, who arrives at this event with the distinction of holding a World Record achieved in Oregon, USA, where she shattered the world record during a remarkable semi-final race with a time of 12.12 seconds, showed her incredible prowess by crossing the finish line at Hayward Field in just 12.06 seconds.

However, her impressive winning time won’t be acknowledged as a new world record due to a significant tailwind of 2.5 meters per second.

Moreover, just two days before the commencement of the world championships, Tobiloba’s temporary suspension was lifted following an appeals panel’s determination that she did not breach antidoping regulations that typically entail a suspension for missing tests.

Amusan had disclosed on social media that she had been charged for failing to participate in three tests over the course of a year.

She secured the top position in her heats, securing a place in the subsequent round by completing the race in 12.48 seconds from lane 4. Additionally, her time ranked as the second best overall in the heats.

Tomorrow at 8:40pm, she is set to compete once more with the aim of securing a spot in the finals of the World Athletics Championships 100 meters Hurdles, seeking to uphold her title as the reigning world champion.
