Jamaica Invitational: Amusan Sets New World-leading Time


World record-holder in the Women’s 100m Hurdles Tobi Amusan blazed to yet another superb win at the 2024 Jamaica Athletics Invitational with a world-leading time of 12.40s.

The reigning World Champion clocked a Season’s Best (SB) of 12.40s (0.9), to beat her friend Danielle Williams of Jamaica, who ran 12.46s, while Christina Clemons of the United States was 3rd in 12.54s.

Amusan trailed reigning Danielle Williams and American Nia Ali for most of the race but surged ahead in the closing stages, eclipsing the previous world-leading time of 12.42 set by Tonea Marshall of the USA on April 20.
