Nigeria’s digital and telecommunications services provider, Globacom, has announced the appointment of the current African, Commonwealth and World Champion in the 100m hurdles, Tobi Amusan, as its latest Brand Ambassador.

She was unveiled to the media at a ceremony held on Thursday at the company’s headquarters in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Amusan became the first Nigerian world champion in an athletic event when she won the gold medal in the100 meters hurdles event at the 2022 World Athletics Championships.

She set a new world record of 12.12 seconds in the semifinal and followed this up with 12.06 seconds in the final to take the gold medal.

“She is an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit of resilience, hard work, and enterprise which enabled her to excel irrespective of the enormity of the challenges she encountered in her quest for success.

“These are qualities that Globacom identifies with.”

He explained that Amusan has become a testimony to the famous saying by Malcom X that: “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today,” adding: “She prepared very hard in the previous years and today belongs to her.

“Tomorrow is also waiting for other determined Nigerian and African youths who begin their preparations today.

“We, therefore, urge them not to be discouraged by present challenges, but to continue to strive to realize their dreams.”
