The feat comes after she could not defend her title in Budapest, finishing sixth in the final at the National Athletics Centre in Budapest, Hungary.

Amusan claimed her first Diamond League Trophy in 2021 in a time of 12.42 seconds and thereafter clocked a time of 12.29 seconds to clinch her second in Zurich last year.

She is now the second woman to win the 100m hurdles event in the Diamond League for three years in a row, only behind Dawn Harper-Nelson, who won it in 2012, 2023 and 2014.
