Tobi Amusan is excited about her third consecutive Diamond League victory.
The 100-meter women’s hurdles record holder took first position at the Oregon Diamond League on Sunday night.
The Nigerian previously won the title in 2021 and 2022.
Amusan won the race in a season’s best time of 12.33 seconds
The 26-year-old Nigerian became the second athlete to achieve the feat following in the footsteps of Serbia’s Ivana Vuleta, who won the Diamond League 100 meters women’s hurdles title in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
It was a glorious end to the year for Amusan, who lost her world title at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, last month.
The 26-year-old reacted to the win: ”I came out here and said it’s my race to lose and I will give my all. I said it’s 200 or nothing, because 100 %, I am not winning today. So I came out here and I told God to give me the strength.
“I said this (racing in Eugene) is God’s track. I came here I’m like ‘this is my track, I’m going to dominate’ and God did just that.
“Right now I just want to rest. I’m just grateful to God, that’s all I can say this season. This win is not about me, it’s for my coach, my family, for everyone who supported me throughout this year. It’s been a rough one and I’m just thankful.”
