Tobi Amusan Storms Berlin For Pre-Diamond League Final Tune-Up Race

Reigning World 100m hurdles champion and record holder Tobiloba Amusan will be returning to track and field action at the ISTAF Berlin 2022 meeting on Sunday in Berlin

to begin her final preparations for the Diamond League final in Zurich where she will be seeking to successfully defend the high hurdles title she won last year.

The 25 year old was missing in action at the Allianz Memorial Van Damme, the penultimate leg of the 13-leg Diamond League series in Brussels last Friday.

The Nigerian will however be back in action on Sunday at the blue track in Berlin where she won on her first outdoor visit in 2019, running 12.57 seconds.

Amusan was in Berlin the following winter (2020) and won twice over the 60m hurdles.

The reigning Commonwealth Games champion and record holder will be hoping to win in her third visit to the historic city.

Unlike in 2019, Amusan will be using the race to prepare for the Diamond League final and she knows she needs to run as fast as she can especially after reigning

Olympic champion, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn ran 12.27 seconds to win in Brussels last week.

Among the Nigerian and African 100m hurdles champion rivals is the rising American star, Tia Jones who ran a new 12.38 seconds lifetime best to come second in Brussels

and Jamaica’s Olympic bronze medallist Megan Tapper.

Amusan will also be attacking the 12.37 seconds meeting record set 36 years ago by Yordanka Donkova of Bulgaria.
