Video+Story: UTEP’s Tobi Amusan Garners Co-C-USA Athlete of the Week

Irving, Texas – UTEP sophomore Tobi Amusan was named the Conference USA Track Co-Athlete of the Week as announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon.

In her first outdoor race of the season, the sprinter ran the nation’s fastest time this year in the 100m hurdles (12.63).

Before the race could start there was a 30-minute delay due to a camera malfunction, but that didn’t freeze Amusan from running the ninth-fastest time in NCAA (outdoor) history.

The sprinter set the school record and looks to carry that momentum with her to Austin, Texas, where she will compete against some of the best around the nation at the Texas Relays. Amusan will compete in the 4x100m relay and the 100m hurdles on Friday.

This year’s meet will be available online at espn3.com and via the WatchESPN app for smartphones and tables.
