Glo Ambassador, Amusan, Hailed For Diamond League Victory


Tobi Amusan

As Tobi Amusan basks in the euphoria of her recent win in the women’s 100 metres hurdles in the Diamond League championship in Oregon, United States, Globacom has described the star athlete as “a true African ambassador and an inspiration to millions of youths who look up to her as a role model”.

On Sunday evening, she won in a time of 12.33 seconds to claim her third consecutive Diamond League title. Amusan had in 2021 earned her first Diamond League trophy in 12.42 seconds and successfully defended the title in 2022 after recording 12.29 seconds in Zurich, Switzerland.

With this new achievement, Amusan has emerged the second woman in Diamond League history after Dawn Nelson-Harper to win a hat-trick of 100m hurdles titles.

In a press statement issued Tuesday in Lagos, Globacom lauded Amusan, its ambassador, for the outstanding achievement, saying her victory had shown that she was a talented professional who still has a lot to offer the world of athletics.

Glo described Amusan as an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit of resilience and hard work, urging her to continue to forge ahead, win more laurels and leave an indelible mark in global athletics that would be remembered for years to come.
