Amusan, Camacho-Quinn to renew supremacy battle in Silesia July 16

World champion Tobi Amusan and Olympic champion, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn will renew their battle for supremacy on July 16 in Silesia, Poland where the Diamond League will make its eighth stop.

Amusan won her first Diamond League race of the year in Stockholm on Sunday in the absence of Camacho-Quinn but both will go head to head again for the fourth time this season and the 18th time since they both clashed at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships in Jun 2016.

Camacho-Quinn, the 26 year old from Puerto Rico has won all three meetings between the two so far this year and will be looking to make it 4-0 with the World Athletics Championships just days away.

The Nigerian, also 26, will be seeking a morale boosting win in Silesia as she bids to successfully defend her World 100m title in Budapest.

Amusan has beaten Camacho-Quinn only six times in 17 races with the Nigerian winning three important and global titles along the way.

She won the NCAA outdoor title in 2017 in Eugene, Oregon to avenge her loss to the Puerto Rican a year earlier at the same venue.

The African and Commonwealth sprint hurdles queen returned to Eugene again five years later to deny Camacho-Quinn the honour of winning the World Championships title a year after storming to Olympic glory in Tokyo, Japan.

Amusan was also the winner at the Diamond League final in Zurich last September after scaling the hurdles for 12.29 seconds ahead of the Puerto Rican who came in fourth (12.49).
