Tobi Amusan returns to winning ways at Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica

World record holder, Tobi Amusan has returned to winning ways after blazing to a Season’s Best (SB) of 12.57s (-0.4) to win the women’s 100m Hurdles event at the Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica.

Tia Jones, a US sensation, came in second place in 12.72 seconds, far behind Amusan, who came in third in 12.80 seconds.

For the Nigerian, who had suffered a string of defeats since the outdoor season got underway, it is a significant victory. After beginning the year with a 200-meter win in Auburn, this is actually her second victory overall and first in the hurdles this year.

Amusan started her season with a second-place finish at the Tom Jones Invitational, clocking a Season Best (SB) of 12.59s behind Nia Ali’s winning time of 12.53s.

She then ran a Personal Best (PB) of 11.10s to finish third in the 100m at the same meet. Despite the losses, her new PB is faster than her time of 11.15s last year, which proved to be a good marker for her season, and ended up breaking the 100m Hurdles World Record (WR) in Oregon.

Since the Tom Jones meet, Amusan has faced a string of inconsistent performances in her races, and she even withdrew from running at the Adidas City Games.

Amusan will later reveal that she had a ‘major’ injury earlier in the season, which she was recovering from and getting back to shape according to Pulse Sports

With her now back to winning ways, Amusan can build on this momentum in her next competitions as she continues preparations with expectations of successfully defending her world title in Budapest.
