World Athletics Championship: Amusan Hopes To Return Stronger Despite Defeat

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan hopes to make a comeback to the podium after failing to defend her world title at the ongoing World Athletics Championship in Budapest.

Amusan finished sixth place in 12.62s in her third consecutive final as Jamaica’s Danielle Williams won the title in a season-best of 12.43s while Olympic champion, Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn came second in 12.44s and USA Kendra Harrison came third in 12.46s.

Reacting after losing the title, Amusan said she will be back “stronger” next year to reclaim her crown.

“It has been God, my team and my family,” the 2022 gold winner told reporters.
