Tobi Amusan missing from the starting list for Zurich Diamond League

World Record holder Tobi Amusan is surprisingly missing from the starting list of the women’s 100m Hurdles at the Zurich Diamond League.

Amusan lost her World title to Jamaica’s Danielle Williams at the World Championships in Budapest, with Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn settling for the silver medal, and former WR holder Keni Harrison taking the bronze medal, while the Nigerian was sixth.

The 26-year-old former world champion was on the Zurich Diamond League list but has been removed for reasons unknown.

Amusan leads the Diamond League standings alongside US champion Nia Ali, which she could have extended if present in Zurich. Her absence gives room for other hurdlers who’ll be competing to earn more points and perhaps surpass her.

World champion Williams tops the list of the stacked field in Zurich, as well as Camacho-Quinn and Harrison. Completing the list are Budapest finalists Devynne Charlton, Ditaji Kambundji, and Ali. While Tia Jones, Alaysha Johnson, and Pia Skrzyszowska.
