Globacom has commended the resilience and enterprise of athletics sensation, Tobi Amusan, who last Sunday won another Diamond League title in women’s 100metres hurdles.
Amusan, a Glo brand ambassador, won the race in 12.33secs in Eugene, United States, her third consecutive victory in the competition. She first won the title in 2021 with 12.42 seconds, and successfully defended the title in 2022 after running 12.29 seconds in Zurich, Switzerland.
She thus becomes the second woman in the Diamond League history after Dawn Nelson-Harper to win a hat-trick of 100m hurdles titles.
The champion, who was unable to defend her World Championship title in Budapest, Hungary, due to distractions caused her by Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), promised to come back “stronger and better”.
Globacom said in a statement yesterday that Amusan’s victory had shown that she was a talented professional who still had a lot to offer the world of athletics.
“With the third Diamond League trophy in her kitty, Amusan remains a true African ambassador at the world stage and an inspiration to millions of youths who look up to her as a role model”, the digital solutions company said in the statement.
It described Amusan as the quintessence of the Nigerian spirit of resilience and enterprise which Globacom symbolises, and urged her to continue to work hard, win more laurels and leave a mark that will be difficult to forget in world athletics.
