Nigerian athlete Tobi Amusan has continued to make waves in the world of track and field. At the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston, she broke the African Record for the 60m Hurdles for the second time. Clocking an impressive 7.75s, she finished second in a tough race won by Tia Jones in 7.72s, with Devynne Charlton coming in third at 7.76s.


While Amusan didn’t take the top spot, her performance was outstanding, breaking her own previous African Record of 7.77 seconds set just a week ago. This signals a strong message to her competitors about her current form and ambitions for the upcoming Paris Olympic Games.



Notably, Amusan now holds two of the fastest times ever recorded by an African woman in the 60-meter hurdles and is eyeing the World Record of 7.68s before the end of the indoor season.


Another standout athlete, Favour Ofili, shattered a 14-year-old African Record in the 300m. The LSU alumni finished second with a remarkable time of 35.99s, breaking Amantle Montsho‘s old record of 36.33s in Boston on Sunday.



This achievement not only marks Ofili’s return to top form but also positions her well for a successful debut professional season, targeting medals at the World Indoor Championships and the Paris Olympic Games.
