After Jamaica’s Danielle Williams defeated Tobi Amusan of Nigeria on Thursday in Budapest to win the global women’s 100-meter hurdles title, Amusan promises to return stronger the following year.
Amusan stated that, despite everything she had been through in the previous few weeks, it was quite “a journey getting into the final” in a press conference following the game.”I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped me through the good times and the bad. You guys have been there for me, and I pray for you all.
God bless you all, and I apologize if I have let you guys down, but we will absolutely come back stronger.”Yes, it’s difficult; nobody enjoys losing, but in light of everything I’ve experienced over the last several months, I’m really happy that I came out,” she remarked.
