Tobi Amusan and Ese Brume receives OON national honours

World 100m hurdles record-holder Tobi Amusan, has been conferred the national honours of Order of the Niger (OON) by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tobi received the accolade on Thursday at a reception in Abuja for the Team Nigeria athletes who were at the Commonwealth Games and the World Athletics Championships.

Her accomplishments over the past couple of months have been nothing short of spectacular.

She became the first Nigerian to win a World Athletics Championship gold when she set a new mark in the 100m hurdles at Oregon22. She also won gold in the same event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, setting a new games record.

National honour was also bestowed to Nigeria’s long jumper, Ese Brume, who won silver at the World Athletics Championships and gold at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham by breaking the Games Record with 7.00 metres.
