‘One race at a time,’ says Tobi Amusan as she conquers Silesia Diamond League

World record holder, Tobi Amusan, aka, Tobi Rocket, went all the way to win the Silesia Diamond League‘s 100m women’s hurdles on Sunday in Poland.

Tobi Rocket came out tops in a keenly contested race which saw her edge out American runner, Kendra Harrison, with a timing of 12.34 seconds to Kendra’s 12.35 seconds.

The 2019 world champion, Ali, was not too far behind also as she clocked in with a time of 12.38 seconds.
