In 2021, the Nigerian made history with her first Diamond Federation Cup with a record of 12.42 seconds.

She then landed in 12.29 seconds in Zurich last year.

The 27-year-old’s latest achievement comes months after the Nigerian was suspended by the Athletics Integrity Union (AIU) for doping violations.

According to the AIU, she failed three tests in 12 months.

However she was been cleared of any wrongdoing, just three days before the 2023 World Athletics Championships.

She was unable to defend her title in Budapest, finishing sixth in the final at the National Athletics Center in Budapest, Hungary.

Notwithstanding, Amusan vowed to come back “stronger and better.”
