Meanwhile, Tobi Amusan has qualified for the final of the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Amusan returned to the track on Friday for the first time since making history at the World Athletics Championships where she clocked 12:12 seconds in the semifinals.
The Ijebu-Ode born athlete caught the attention of the world at the World Championships held in Oregon, United States where she also won gold in the 100 metres hurdles. Her 12:06 seconds timing in the final was not recognised as a world record due to an illegal tailwind.
