At the Diamond League, Camacho-Quinn defeated Tobi Amusan in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, setting a new meeting record of 12.34 seconds (-0.9).
Tobi Amusan, Nigeria’s champion sprinter, won silver at the ongoing Diamond League Meet on Friday night after breaking through at this year’s World Athletics Championship in Oregon, United States.
Still stinging from her record-breaking Commonwealth Games gold in Birmingham earlier in August, Amusan hoped to continue her outstanding performance, but she was denied by 2020 Tokyo Olympics winner Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico.
Amusan came in second with a time of 12.45 seconds and qualified for Zurich, while American Tia Jones came in third with a time of 12.47 seconds, a new personal best.
The Diamond League is a yearly series of elite track and field athletics competitions that includes 14 of the best invitational athletics meetings.
The series is ranked first in the World Athletics one-day meeting competitions.
