Recall that Amusan smashed the world record after clocking 12.06s (+2.5m/s) in the final of the 100m Women’s hurdles and also became the first Nigerian to win a world championship.
In a statement issued on Monday by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, he congratulated Amusan for doing Nigeria proud.
“The President joins millions of Nigerians in celebrating this outstanding feat by a compatriot and two-time African Games champion, who in one night stunned the athletics world with her superlative and stellar performance,” he said.
“The President thanks the track superstar for making the Nigerian national anthem resonate again from the international podium, leaving the nation with the excitement and unforgettable memories of tears of joy and triumph; hope and victory; incredulity and belief.
“President Buhari says the legendary career and achievements of the golden girl will continue to inspire the upcoming generations of Nigerian athletes to achieve spectacular success.”
