Sprint hurdler Tobiloba Amusan came fourth in her 2021 Diamond League debut at the Meeting de Paris in Paris on Saturday.

The 24 year old Nigerian ran 12.69 seconds in the race won by Jamaica’s Williams Danielle (12.50s) with Netherland’s Visser Nadine (12.58s) and another Jamaican, Tapper Megan (12.66s) coming second and third respectively.

It was the petite Nigerian’s second race after coming fourth in the final of the event at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Amusan competed and won at the CITIUS Meeting in Bern, Switzerland on August 21 before placing fourth in her first Diamond League race of the season on Saturday.

The reigning African Games champion and record holder garnered five points from the meeting from just one out of a possible five meetings and ranks 11th in the qualification standing for the Diamond League final.

Amusan will now be hoping she gets invited to run at the penultimate round of the Diamond League series, the 45th Allianz Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, Belgium on September 5. A repeat of her fourth placing effort will bring her total points haul to 10 and hopes reigning Olympics champion in the event, Puerto Rico’s Amacho-Quinn Jasmine (8 points), Chadwick Payton of the USA (7 points), Charlton Devynne of the Bahamas (7 points), Koazk Luca of Hungary (7 points) and Herman Elvira of Belarus (6 points) either do not make any appearance in Belgium like they did not in Paris or finish between sixth and eighth to enable the Nigerian be among the final eight that will be in the final at the Weltklasse in Zurich, Switzerland on September 8 and 9 where her focus will be on winning the event to make history as the first to do so when the Diamond League series was introduced in 2010.

The winner of each final will be crowned Wanda Diamond League champion and take home the prestigious Diamond Trophy and US$ 30,000.
