Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan sped to her fastest time this year to finish third behind Jasmine Camacho-Quinn in Ostrava.

World Record holder Tobi Amusan clocked her fastest time of the year to finish third at the Golden Spikes Meet in Ostrava.

Amusan settled for third in a Season’s Best (SB) time of 12.47s behind Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, who had a strong finish to win the race in 12.42s(0.0), while US sensation Tia Jones was second in 12.44s.
