Danielle Williams, another Jamaican, rounded out the top five in 12.42 seconds.

It was the fastest time this season for the Nigeria sprint icon, equalling Jasmine Camacho-Quinn’s MR.

The record catapults her to the top of the Diamond League standings where she is seven points ahead of Camacho-Quinn, who for the first time, didn’t feature in a Diamond League meet this season.

Recall Amusan recently won the Diamond League meeting in Stockholm which makes her victory in Silesia, her second consecutive Diamond League win this season as she continues her build-up to a third successful title defense.
