Oluwatobilolba Amusa, the first Nigerian to win 100m hurdles at commonwealth gamesOluwatobiloba Amusa, made history as she became the first Nigerian to win a sprint hurdles title at the Commonwealth Games. She broke the record today at the Carrara stadium in Gold Coast, Australia.

Oluwatobiloba Amusa ran 12.68 seconds to win the race making her Nigeria’s first gold medallist in track and field at the ongoing games.

“I’ve had to learn how to manage it myself, how to face the world. It’s not about what other people think of me, it’s about how I think of myself.”
