…Shifts focus to World Championships


Reigning African champion and record holder in the 100m Hurdles event, Nigeria’s Tobiloba Amusan, is happy with her ‘solid race’ at the Diamond League meet held in Stockholm, Sweden on Thursday.


Amusan posted a time of 12.50 seconds to finish second in her race behind reigning Olympic champion, Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who won in 12.46 seconds.


Despite the second-place finish, Amusan has moved into a nearly unassailable position in the race for the final Diamond League meeting in Zurich this September.


With just two more races to go at the Athletissima in Lausanne, Switzerland on August 26 and the Allianz Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, Belgium on September 2, Amusan looks certain to make the final eight for the final in Zurich having already amassed 22 points.
