Amusan Sparkles At Commonwealth Games, Cruises To 100m Hurdles Final


Tobi Amusan says she is “exhausted” after winning world 100m hurdles gold last month but the Nigerian world record holder looked impressive on Friday as she cruised through to the Commonwealth Games final.

Amusan began the defence of her crown by finishing top of the qualifying times in 12.40sec, in windy conditions.

“The mental part is there and the physical part is also done,” said Amusan. “But I’ve been so exhausted after those championships.

“I’m just trying to hang in there and finish the season strong.”

The 25-year-old Nigerian, who sported the logo “No Plastic Waste” on her tracksuit — is the favourite but there are a clutch of rivals who could trouble her.
