Amusan aims for new world record

World champion Tobi Amusan will be facing tough competitors this week at the Golden Spikes Meet in Ostrava and Lausanne Diamond League. The hurdler, who also holds the world record, is hopeful of reaching the 11-second mark.

Amusan set the current world record of 12.12 seconds at last year’s World Championships.

In the final she ran a time of 12.06 seconds, but due to the tailwind, it was not recognised as a new record.

“I’m a firm believer in the Bible, nothing is impossible and 11 seconds? Most definitely,” Amusan told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s Golden Spike meet in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava.

Amusan will make her first start in Ostrava on Tuesday alongside heavyweights such as Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, former world champion Nia Ali and US sensation Tia Jones.

And she will open her Diamond League campaign in Lausanne on Friday, June 30 alongside Camacho-Quinn, Ali, Jones, and one of the best hurdlers this season, Alaysha Johnson.

The reigning world champion will be gunning to build on her win at the Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica three weeks ago, where she won in a convincing Season’s Best (SB) of 12.57s.

Also, she will be aiming for revenge against these women who have handed her consecutive losses this season.

And with her injury woes behind her, Amusan has got pundits convinced that she’s back to form in preparation to defend her world title in Budapest.
