Tobi Amusan Beats World Champion, Danielle Williams, Becomes World’s Fastest Woman

Nigerian sprinter Tobi Amusan has won the 100m hurdles in the Jamaica Athletics Invitational with an impressive show of speed and agility, outpacing world champion Danielle Williams.

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

This extraordinary triumph represents a watershed moment in Amusan’s career, as she now leads the world rankings, beating American Tonea Marshall’s previous world top time of 12.42 seconds, recorded in late April.

With the Paris 2024 Olympics quickly approaching, Amusan’s dominance in the 100m hurdles has given a clear message to her competitors as a force to reckon with.

Minister of Sports Development John Enoh congratulated Amusan on her excellent achievement, commending her for making Nigeria proud.
