Nigerian Hurdler Oluwatobi Amusan ended her season on a positive note as she recorded another win at the Continental Tour Gold meets in Zagreb on Tuesday.

Fresh from becoming the first Nigerian to win IAAF Diamond League in Zurich, Amusan went into the Zagreb race as the favourite.

The African and commonwealth game medalist did not disappoint as she crossed the finish line with a time of 12.61s.

The Ogun State-born athlete who also won a race in Poland was just one-hundredth off the Meeting Record of 12.60s.

It was a fantastic way to end her season, after missing out on the podium at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Amusan will be hoping to continue her late dominance when the new season begins in a few months.
