Defending champion Tobi Amusan has apologized to her fans for losing the world women’s 100m hurdles crown to Jamaica’s Danielle Williams on Thursday in a shock win at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
30-year-old Williams who previously won in Beijing in 2015, by 12.43 seconds to kick out Olympic champion, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico who lost with 12.44 seconds while Kendra Harrison of the United States took the bronze title.
Speaking with journalists after the race, Amusan also said she will be back stronger next year.
She said it was quite “a journey getting into the final” despite all she had gone through in the last couple of weeks.
Amusan said, “I just want to say a huge thank you to those who have been supporting me through the ups and downs, Ya’ll stood by me, kept praying for me, God bless you all, I am sorry I might have let you all down, but we will back stronger definitely.
