BREAKING; Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan loses 100mH World Athletics championship final, in Budapest

Jamaica’s Danielle Williams finally raced to world gold in the 100 metres hurdles once again, winning by the narrowest margin eight years after first climbing the global medal podium.

Nigeria’s world record holder Tobi Amusan, who arrived in Budapest amid controversy, was sixth.

The 26-year-old, who set the world record of 12.12 in the semi-finals last year and then won gold, had a provisional anti- doping suspension lifted two days before the worlds began.

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) provisionally suspended Amusan last month due to three whereabouts failures within a 12-month period, but the decision was overturned by the AIU’s independent disciplinary tribunal panel.
