Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas, who won the silver medal at the World Indoors in 12.63 seconds, and Cindy Sember of Great Britain were defeated by her (12.73secs).

“Definitely, I have been well prepared for this competition because I have been training really hard. I came to execute well and to get the win and it worked,” Amusan disclosed. “I am not the best starter but I tried to stay with the girls: I have the national Trials coming up next week, so I am leaving home to Nigeria. Then I have the Stockholm Diamond League and will get ready for the World Championships.”
