Nigeria's Tobi Amusan has upset the world champion, Danielle Williams, right on her home soil in Jamaica to become the world's fastest woman.

Amusan achieved this in a stunning display of speed and agility as she outpaced the world champion, Danielle Williams, to claim the top spot in the 100m hurdles at the Jamaica Athletics Invitational.

With a blistering time of 12.40 seconds (0.9m/s), Amusan not only defeated the reigning world champion but also solidified her position as the fastest woman in the world.

This remarkable victory marks a significant milestone in Amusan’s career as she has now taken the lead in the world rankings, surpassing American Tonea Marshall’s previous world lead time of 12.42 seconds set in late April.

With the Paris 2024 Olympics just around the corner, Amusan’s dominance in the 100m hurdles has sent a clear message to her competitors: she is a force to be reckoned with.

Minister of Sports Development John Enoh was quick to congratulate Amusan on her outstanding achievement, praising her for making Nigeria proud. “Take your flowers Tobi Amusan, you stormed to an emphatic win in the women’s 100m hurdles at the Jamaica Athletics Invitational, clocking a time of 12.40s (0.9), a World Lead time!”

“You defeated World Champion Danielle Williams, who came 2nd in 12.46s, while Christina Clemons was 3rd in 12.54s. Tobi, you keep making our country proud.”

“Paris Olympics is around the corner, your performance gives us hope just like others, that Nigeria is set to break a jinx. Keep soaring, we are proud of you..”

Amusan’s impressive performance in Jamaica is just the latest in a string of successes for the 26-year-old sprinter.
