World Athletics ratifies Tobi Amusan’s 100m hurdles record
The World Athletics has ratified the women’s world 100m hurdles record set by Tobi Amusan at the 2022 World Championships. A statement by the international athletic governing body on Tuesday further revealed that the record times of two other athletes — Mondo Duplantis and Sydney McLaughlin – have also been ratified.
The athletes had set the records at the World Athletics Championships that took place in Oregon, the United States, in July.
The statement read, “The world records set by Tobi Amusan, Mondo Duplantis, and Sydney McLaughlin at the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 have been ratified.
“Amusan’s 12.12 in the women’s 100m hurdles semi finals, Duplantis’s 6.21m in the men’s pole vault final and McLaughlin’s 50.68 in the women’s 400m hurdles final are all now officially in the record books, as is the world U20 mark of 9.94 set by Letsile Tebogo in the men’s 100m heats.”
The 25-year-old Amusan took the world by storm when she ran a time of 12.12secs – shaving almost a tenth of a second off the previous world record held by American Keni Harrison (12.20secs) – in the semi-finals of the World Championships in Oregon, USA, before going on to win gold in the final at the Hayward Field stadium.
