World Champion Tobi Amusan has booked her ticket to the final of the Women’s 100m Hurdles at the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games taking place in Birmingham, England.

This was after Amusan won the Semi-final round of the event on Friday, racing to the finish line in 12.40s, ahead of her closest rival Michelle Jenneke of Australia in lane five and three other contestants.

The final of the event is scheduled to take place at the Alexander Arena on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ese Brume has also qualified for the final of the Long Jump event, while Odunayo Adekuoroye will participate in the Quarter Finals of 57kg Wrestling.

Last year, Amusan qualified for the final race of the women’s 100 metres hurdles event at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, by winning the semi-final 1 with a time of 12.62 seconds.

The 25-year-old stunned the world, including herself two Sundays ago when she broke the world record in the women’s 100 metres hurdles to win gold at the World Athletics Championship in Eugene, Oregon, in the United States.
