Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan took home a $100,000 check for breaking the world record in the women’s 100m hurdles in Eugene, Oregon.
Amusan won the final in a wind-aided time of 12.06, better than the 12.12s she ran in the semi-finals. The time was later declared ineligible as the wind speed exceeded the legal limit.
Amusan, who is the current Commonwealth champion, beat Jamaica’s, Britany Anderson
