Tobi Amusan clocked 12.56s to win the semi-final 2 on Wednesday in Budapest, Hungary.
Jamaica’s Ackera Nugent secured the second place at 12.60s, followed by Netherlands’ Nadine Visser who claimed the third position in 12.62 seconds.
Amusan hopes for a better performance, as she has the chance to defend her World Championship title after securing qualification to the women’s 100m Hurdles final at the ongoing World Athletics Championships.
With an exceptional performance, Amusan started off her campaign with an impressive 12.48 win in the heats on Tuesday, she yet did well to secure a berth in the final on Wednesday night, despite a relatively slow start to her race in the semis.
The 26-year-old will be making her 3rd consecutive World Athletics Championships final appearance but, of course, for the first time a defending champion.
The Nigerian defends her world title against familiar rivals including Keni Harrison, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, Nia Ali and Danielle Williams in the final on Thursday night at 8:22pm Nigerian time.
