 Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has set a new 100m hurdles world record in the World Championships semi-finals.

According to BBC, the 25-year-old, who ran a new African record of 12.40 seconds in Saturday’s heats, clocked 12.12 seconds on the final day of action in Eugene on Sunday.

Her time beat American Kendra Harrison’s record of 12.20 seconds in 2016.

She won gold in the finals.

Great Britain’s Cindy Sember finished fourth in the semi-final won by Amusan but qualified for the final with a new British record of 12.50, beating sister Tiffany Porter’s 2014 mark by one hundredth of a second, BBC reported.
