This time she didn’t just win, but she did it by smashing the old Commonwealth Games record and setting another one with a time of 12.30s.

The silver goes to Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas, who finishes in 12.58 – just ahead of England’s Sember who clocks 12.59.

The 25-year-old athlete is now a two-time Commonwealth Games gold medalist.

Tobi Amusan also holds the African, World, and Commonwealth Games records.

Her gold medal takes Nigeria’s medal hauls to 31.
