Reigning World Champion and Commonwealth gold medallist, Tobi Amusan breezed to an easy win in women’s 100m Hurdles at ISTAF Berlin meet yesterday, winning by more than one-tenth over her closest challenger.

Last month, Amusan finished second behind 2020 Tokyo Olympics winner, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico at the Diamond League Meet in Lausanne, Switzerland.
