Amusan had previously secured victories in the women’s 100m hurdles in 2018 in Asaba and two years ago in Mauritius.

If she had competed and won, she would have joined Maria Usifo and Glory Alozie as the only athletes to win three consecutive African titles in the women’s 100m hurdles.

Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Adaobi Tabugo has already qualified for the final. Team Nigeria also won two gold medals during the competition’s opening on Friday.
