2022 Commonwealth games: Team Nigeria athletes’ performance quite encouraging – Olaniran


Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume have set a new Commonwealth Games record at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Amusan clinched the gold in the Women’s 100m Hurdles after crossing the finished line in 12.30 seconds.

This comes barely two weeks after the 25-year-old became the first Nigerian athlete to win a World Athletics Championship gold as she stormed to victory in the women’s 100m hurdles in Oregon.

Brume on the other hand, had a no jump on her first attempt but bounced back right away to jump 6.99m to take the lead in the final and set a new Games Record.

However, on her very last attempt, Brume jumped seven meters for another Games Record to become the first woman to jump that far in the history of the Commonwealth Games.
