Tobi Amusan has won the women’s 100 metres hurdles at the Diamond League in Eugene, Oregon, US.

Amusan clinched the trophy on Sunday evening after she got to the finish line in 12.33 seconds to successfully claim her third consecutive Diamond League title.

Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quin came second in 12.38s, while Kendra Harrison of the US finished third.

The Nigerian won her first Diamond League trophy in 2021 in 12.42 seconds and defended the title last year after dipping 12.29 seconds in Zurich.


Amusan’s 2023 season has been hampered by controversy.

During the lead-up to the 2023 World Athletics Championships, she was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unity (AIU) for allegedly “missing three tests in 12 months”.

Her participation in the world championship was in jeopardy until she was cleared of the charge three days before the competition.


Amusan failed to defend her world title in Budapest after she finished sixth in the final at the National Athletics Centre in Budapest, Hungary.

Following the disappointing title defence, the 27-year-old spoke about her time on the sidelines and how her situation “could have been worse”.

The athlete promised to come back “stronger and better”.
