Tobi Amusan Breaks New World Record


World champion, "Tobi Amusan", is hopeful of reaching the 11-second mark at the Golden Spikes Meet in Ostrava and Lausanne Diamond League.

"Amusan" set the current world record of 12.12 seconds at last year’s World Championships.

"She even managed 12.06 seconds in the final, but the time was not recognised as a new record because of the tailwind."

I’m a big believer in the Bible, nothing is impossible and 11 seconds? Most definitely, "Amusan" told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s Golden Spike meet in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava.

"Amusan" is scheduled to race first in Ostrava on Tuesday today with heavyweights such as Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, former world champion Nia Ali and US sensation Tia Jones.

Then in Lausanne, she’ll open her Diamond League campaign on Friday, June 30 alongside "Camacho-Quinn", "Ali", "Jones", and one of the best hurdlers this season, "Alaysha Johnson".

"The reigning world champion will be gunning to build on her win at the Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica three weeks ago, where she won in a convincing Season’s Best (SB) of 12.57s."

Also, she will be aiming for revenge against these women who have handed her consecutive losses this season.
