Bolt took to his official Twitter account to congratulate the Nigerian for setting a new world record at the World Athletics Championship in Oregon. Bolt is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100 meters and 200 meters titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012, and 2016). He also won two 4 × 100 relay gold medals.

Tobi set a record of 12.12 seconds by breaking a 12.20 seconds six-year-old record held by Keni Harrison of the United States in 2016. She achieved this feat by setting a personal best record, season’s best, the national record, African best and the World Record.
