Tobi Amusan falls sick one month before the 2024 Olympics

Nigeria’s hope of winning gold in the women’s 100-meter hurdles at the 2024 Olympics in Paris is jeopardized after Tobi Amusan reportedly fell ill earlier this week.
Tobi Amusan is Nigeria’s greatest shot to win gold in the 100-meter hurdles event at the Paris Olympics, because to her unstoppable form over the last two years.

She has won almost everything in her sport, both globally and locally, but she has yet to win an Olympic medal.

Tobi Amusan won her fourth national title after competing in the national women’s 100m hurdles trials in Benin City earlier this month.

She ran 12.78 seconds to defeat Adaobi Tabugbo (13.33 seconds) and Faith Osamuyi (13.36 seconds) for the national title.

The 27-year-old Ogun-born sprinter was anticipated to carry that form into the upcoming African Senior Athletics Championship in Cameroon. Unfortunately, she failed to attend her function on Friday, June 21, despite the fact that she was already in Cameroon.

Since then, there have been speculations that she is ill, but the nature of the disease has not been divulged, and her team has not issued an official confirmation.

However, several sources, including the Daily Post, stated earlier today that Tobi Amusan has withdrawn from the tournament owing to illness.

Since the competition began on Friday, Nigerian competitors have won two gold medals, and Tabugo has qualified for the final.

The 2024 Paris Olympics will begin on July 26 and end on August 11.
