Berlin 100-meter hurdles champion Amusan
Tobi Amusan, the current World Champion and Commonwealth gold medalist, easily won the women’s 100-meter hurdles event at the ISTAF Berlin competition yesterday, winning by more than one-tenth of a second over her nearest rival.
Tia Jones, an American, came in second with a time of 12.58 seconds, and Megan Tapper, a Jamaican, took third place with a time of 12.66 seconds. Amusan finished first with a time of 12.45 seconds (-0.3).
Amusan placed second last month in the Diamond League Meet in Lausanne, Switzerland, behind Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico, who won the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
A fellow Commonwealth Games gold medalist, came in second in the women’s long jump event in the same competition. Malaika Mihambo won the competition after clearing a height of 6.92 meters, placing ahead of Brume who cleared 6.78 meters. In six tries, the German only completed one jump that was legal, and that was her very first jump.
Ese Brume, 26, won the women’s long jump competition at the Allianz Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday by clearing a distance of 6.83 meters, earning her maiden victory at the Diamond League Meet.
