AMUSAN BLAZES TO 12.51S IN BERLIN AS ENEKWECHI PLACES 2ND IN BELLINZONA
Commonwealth Games Champion Tobi Amusan powered to a 12.51s performance to highlight the ISTAF meeting in Berlin, an IAAF World Challenge meeting, at the city’s fabled Olympic Stadium.
Not long after adding the African Games Gold to the African Championship title she won last year in Asaba, Delta state, sprint hurdler Amusan ran the second-fastest time of her glorious career to win the women’s 100m hurdles, well clear of Christina Clemons of the US who clocked 12.69 in second.
Her run inside 13s is the thirteenth for the year and her second-fastest since clocking 12.49s in the middle of July at the Meeting Pro Athlé Tour de Sotteville les Rouen in Sotteville, France.
In Spain, Chukwuebuka Enekuechi continued to rub shoulders with the best Shot Putters in the World as he once again finished inside the top three in a major meet.
The African Championship Champion produced his ninth put over 21m to take second place with 21.44m just a few days after his win at the African Games in Rabat with 21.48m.
