AMUSAN BATTLES WORLD RECORD HOLDER KENDRA HARRISON IN BIRMINGHAM

Commonwealth Games Gold medalist Tobi Amusan will go head-to head with the World Record holder in the women’s 100m Hurdles Kendra Harrison in Birmingham on Sunday, August 18.

Amusan, who is among the six hurdlers to have sealed a spot in the final of the women’s 100m hurdles in Brussels on September 6 will hope to stamp her authority as one of the best in the event after placing fifth last time out in London.

The Ijebu-Ode born runner currently has a Season’s Best and Personal Best of 12.49s, a time which puts her in the top five in the world, will also come up against Jamaica’s Danielle Williams, who ran the fastest time (12.32) in the World when she won the event at the Muller Anniversary Games three weeks back.

Also, on the field are 2016 Olympic champion Brianna McNeal and two-time world indoor champion Nia Ali, with the duo holding six global medals between them.

2018 world indoor bronze medalist Nadine Visser (NED), 2016 Olympic 4th placer Cindy Ofili (GBR, Woodford Green Essex Ladies) and reigning British champion Alicia Barrett will also add spice to the event this Sunday.
