She holds many firsts in Nigeria, and is the champion for all things world. Champion of the world, that’s something not everyone gets to be, and that is who she is.
She is the first Nigerian woman, and the first Nigerian woman, to win a World Championship Gold.
Her win is a beacon of light in a time of crisis for Nigerians, and it’s something that can make them smile.
Sexism is a problem within sports. In the 1900s, they had to fight to be allowed to take part in sports. Blacks were not allowed to participate in sports until the 1940s.
So that the men would not be distracted by women’s clothing, they asked them to wear modest clothing such as petticoats. Imagine playing tennis in a full skirt with long sleeves.
It wasn’t until the 1960s that they began to wear more modern attire. This coincides well with the popularity of sports brands like Adidas and Puma.
But things aren’t the same anymore, women wear light and loose clothing to compete in sports.
This can be seen in modern sports and this year’s world athletic championship where Tobi Amusan emerged triumphant.
Amusan’s style has always been bold, usually wearing her natural hair and a very bold choice of lipstick. She also loves jewellery, bracelets, anklets, necklaces and piercings.
She made cornrows with extensions, and had her nails done in light purple.
This look was very much in fashion at the 2022 World Championship. Black women wore elaborate wigs and had long, colorful nails.
Her win and those of many other women demolish stereotypes and is a testament that being feminine and beautiful doesn’t mean you can’t be sporty and excellent.
