Tobi Amusan began 2024 breaking a new record as the 2024 World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold kicked off in Astana, Kazakhstan, on Saturday.

Amusa stormed to a scintillating Personal Best of 7.77 seconds breaking Glory Alozie’s record of 7.82s in the women’s 60 metres Hurdles, set 25years ago in Madrid.

After leading the heats with a comfortable looking 7.91, she returned to win the final after a powerful second half of her race.
