Amusan Withdraws From African Athletics Championship

Tobi Amusan failed to defend her women’s 100m hurdles title at the 2024 African Athletics Championship due to illness.

The reigning world record holder was aiming to win her third straight gold medal in the event.

Amusan came tops in the women’s 100m hurdles in 2018 in Asaba and two years ago in Mauritius.

Had she competed and won, Amusan would have joined Maria Usifo and Glory Alozie as the only athletes with three consecutive African titles in the women’s 100m hurdles.

Team Nigeria won two gold medals on the first of the competition on Friday.
