I’ll Be Back Stronger – Amusan After Losing 100mH World Title

World record holder Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan says she will be back stronger next year following her failure to defend her World title after finishing 6th in the Women’s 100m hurdles final at the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Budapest on Thursday.

In an interview with journalists after the game, Amusan said, it was quite “a journey getting into the final” despite all she had gone through in the last couple of weeks.

“I Just want to say a huge thank you to who has been supporting me through the ups and downs, Ya’ll stood by me, kept praying for me, God Bless you all, I am sorry I might have let you all down, but we will back stronger definitely.

“Yeah, it’s a tough one; nobody likes to lose but considering what I have gone through in the past couple of months, I’m so grateful that I came out,” she said.

Defending champion Tobi Amusan lost her world women’s 100m hurdles crown to Jamaica’s Danielle Williams on Thursday in a shock win at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Danielle Williams of Jamaica, who previously won in Beijing in 2015, won the title in a season-best of 12.43s edging out Olympic champion, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico (12.44s) in second with Kendra Harrison of the United States taking bronze (12.46).

World champion Amusan finished 6th (12.62s) in her third consecutive final while 2019 winner Nia Ali finished in the last position
