Amusan: It feels great to be Glo ambassador

Women’s world 100m hurdles record holder, Tobi Amusan, has expressed thanks to Globacom for making her the company’s first female athlete brand ambassador.

Amusan was unveiled as Glo Brand Ambassador at an event in Lagos.

The 25-year-old athlete promised to be a good representative of the company and the youths at all times.

“It is a great feeling being the first female athlete ambassador for the brand. I am just proud to be part of this establishment. I am happy to join a long list of stars like Anthony Joshua, Mikel Obi, and Osaze Odemwingie among others. I am proud to be associated with Glo as its brand ambassador. It is a proudly Nigerian company doing great things and empowering Nigerians. I am grateful to the Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, Jr., for giving me this amazing opportunity,” Amusan said.

Globacom’s Regional Manager, Sales, Lagos, Lawrence Odediran said the company is proud of Amusan’s achievement.

“At Globacom, we are very proud of what Tobi Amusan has achieved in her athletics career. She is an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit of resilience, hard work, and enterprise which enabled her to excel irrespective of the enormity of the challenges she encountered in her quest for success. These are qualities that Globacom identifies with,” Odediran said.

Amusan is the first Nigerian ever to win gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.12s. A two-time African Games champion in 100metres hurdles also won back-to-back African and Commonwealth titles in 2018 and 2022 in the 100m hurdles event, before wrapping up her long and successful 2022 campaign by competing in the 100m hurdles at the Zurich Diamond League event, which she won in 12.29 seconds.

“Over a decade of incredible moments and battles to think back on, your career has set the tone for what it means to achieve excellence and lead with integrity and poise. It’s an honour to know you on and off the court, and for many more years to come.”

His great rival Rafael Nadal – the only other player, along with Djokovic, with more Grand Slam singles titles than Federer – said it was “a sad day” for sport.

Current world number ones Iga Swiatek and Carlos Alcaraz, 21 and 19 respectively, thanked Federer for inspiring them.
