Nigeria’s super-elated Tobi Amusan has said that breaking the world record was just not luck, but something she can do repeatedly.

The Nigerian on Thursday defended her Diamond League meeting to wrap up her record-breaking year in style as she broke Gail Devers’ 22-year-old meeting record in a winning time of 12.29secs. She came ahead of American Tia Jones who finished second in 12.40s, Jamaica’s Britany Anderson who came in third in 12.42s while Jasmine Camacho-Quinn ended the race fourth in 12.49s.

The triumph added to what can be described a golden year for the sprinter having already conquered World Championship, Commonwealth and Africa Championship titles.
