American McLaughlin beat Tobi Amusan to win world athletics Award

America star, Mclaughlin Levrone

The World Athletics held its long-awaited award, on Monday night where America star, McLaughlin-Levrone won the women’s award at the expense of Nigeria hurdler Tobiloba Amusan, Npress has gathered.

Just before the award night, the odds favor the American-based Nigeria star who broke the World record in the women’s hurdles in the 2022 World Athletics championship in Oregon.

McLaughlin-Levrone improved her own world 400m hurdles record by 0.78, first to 51.41 at the US Championships and then to an inspiring 50.68 at the World Championships in Oregon.
That secured her a first individual senior world title, and she followed it by anchoring the US team to another 4x400m victory.

The 23-year-old made a statement with her first 400m hurdles race of the year, clocking 51.61 in Nashville in early June. At that point, it was the third-fastest time ever recorded, but the all-time list soon underwent further revisions.

Lining up at the US Championships at Hayward Field, McLaughlin-Levrone stormed to victory in the 400m hurdles in 51.41, taking 0.05 off the mark she set at last year’s Tokyo Olympics.
