The 26-year-old said she teamed up with Abiola Onakoya, who specialises in the 400 metres category, for the yearly competition.

“This is a unique opportunity to join a thought-provocative initiative of grooming future leaders & trailblazers; this year’s Series Two of IJEBU to the WORLD commences on the 3rd & 4th of November 2023,” Amusan added.

The athletes will be hoping for improved performances next year after having a quiet 2023.
