Having put the poor showing at the World Championships behind her, Tobi Amusan claimed her third consecutive title in the women’s 100m hurdles at the Diamond League Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field.

On Sunday night in Oregon, Amusan with a time of 12.33s emerged the winner of the fiercely contested 100m hurdles event to shut her critics after a disappointing outing in Budapest.

Amusan with Sunday’s remarkable performance made history as the second woman in Diamond League history after Dawn Nelson-Harper to win a hat-trick of 100m hurdles titles.

Amusan got out strong and held off a strong field over the final hurdles, crossing in a season-best 12.33. Hard-charging Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico finished second in 12.38 and American Keni Harrison was third in 12.44. World champion Danielle Williams of Jamaica finished fourth in 12.47.
