President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Tobi Amusan for winning the women’s 100m hurdles gold for Nigeria at the World Athletics Championship 2022.

Tobi Amusan in the early hours of Monday broke the women’s 100m hurdles world record in the semi-finals at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Amusan took eight hundredths off American Keni Harrison‘s world record from 2016. Amusan’s previous personal best was 12.40, set in the first round on Saturday in Oregon (Sunday morning in Nigeria).

The message was conveyed by President Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina in a statement on Monday.

“The President joins millions of Nigerians in celebrating this outstanding feat by a compatriot and two-time African Games champion, who in one night stunned the athletics world with her superlative and stellar performance,” Adesina said.

According to the statement, Buhari applauded Amusan for making the Nigerian national anthem resonate again from the international podium, leaving the nation with the excitement and unforgettable memories of tears of joy and triumph; hope and victory; incredulity and belief.

Adesina added that President Buhari says the legendary career and achievements of the golden girl will continue to inspire the upcoming generations of Nigerian athletes to achieve spectacular success.

Buhari also lauded Ese Brume for representing Nigeria with honour and pride, winning a silver medal in the Women’s long jump event.

He praised Team Nigeria for displaying courage, integrity, and good sportsmanship on the world stage, proving that success is achievable with hard work and determination.
