Tobi Amusan wins 100 metres hurdles in Berlin
Tobi Amusan, the reigning world champion and gold medalist from the Commonwealth, easily won the women's 100-meter hurdles event at the ISTAF Berlin meet yesterday by more than a tenth of a second.

Amusan finished first in 12.45 seconds (-0.3), followed by American Tia Jones in 12.58 seconds and Jamaican Megan Tapper in 12.66 seconds.

At the Diamond League Meet in Lausanne, Switzerland, last month, Amusan came in second place to Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico, who won the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

At the same competition, Ese Brume, a fellow Commonwealth Games gold medalist, came in second in the women's long jump. Malaika Mihambo won the competition after jumping 6.92 metres farther than Brume, who finished second with a distance of 6.78 metres. In six attempts, the German only managed one legal jump, which was also her very first jump.

At the Allianz Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday, 26-year-old Ese Brume won the women's long jump competition by clearing a distance of 6.83 metres for her first victory at the Diamond League Meet.
