Representing one’s country at a world tournament is one of the greatest honour an athlete can receive, this was the story of Tobi Amusan who became the first Nigerian athlete to win a World Athletics Championship gold after clinching the women’s 100m hurdles in Oregon on Sunday.
Amusan, who had obliterated the world record in an astonishing semifinal where she clocked 12.12sec, got over the line at Hayward Field in 12.06sec.
After she was decorated with the gold medal, Amusan was spotted crying as the Nigeria national anthem was played in honour of the country (Nigeria) she represents).
