Hundred meter hurdle record breaker Tobi Amusan has been conferred with National Award of Officer of the Niger (OON). The award was bestowed on her by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
Amusan who was a delight to watch as posted a photo finish performance at the World Athletics Championship in Oregan USA as well as the recently concluded Commonwealth Games in Birmingham has been hailed by Nigerians at home for taking the image of the country to greater heights with a brilliant performance.
She was however not the only one that received a pat on the back as other athletes including Adijat Olarinoye were also honoured with various awards. On hand to witness the award being conferred on the athletes was the Minister for Youths and Sports Sunday Dare among other dignitaries .
