Amusan’s 7.75 seconds performance at Boston means she retired the 7.77 record she earlier set in Kazakhstan at the Astana Indoor Meet in January.

Though an African record, the 7.75 effort was not enough for first position in Boston, as Amusan came second behind America’s Tia Jones, who finished in 7.72 seconds.

Closely following Amusan in third position was Bahama’s Devynne Chalton, who finished in 7.76 seconds.

Amusan had on January 27 in her opening race of the new athletic season, beaten the African record set by her compatriot Gloria Alozie.
