Harrison returned a time of 12.20 secs (+0.3m/s) on July 22, 2016 at the London Müller Anniversary Games in London, breaking the world record of 12.21 secs (+0.7m/s) set by Bulgarian athlete Yordanka Donkova (who smashed four world records) on 20th August, 1988.

Harrison had made history in 2016, 2 weeks after she placed sixth in the US trials, failing to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics. She made amends with a Silver medal at the Tokyo2020 Olympics.

Amusan took the world by storm with a 12.12 secs finish in the semis at the World Championships in Eugene on Sunday, with Harrison coming a distant second at 12.27 secs. Harrison will later be disqualified in the finals.

Both Amusan and Harrison are signed on to sports kits manufacturing giants, Adidas and the American is proud they are still leading the line globally.

She wrote:

"Congrats to @Evaglobal01 records are meant to be broken & you smashed mine. Glad to see the record gets to stay in the Adidas fam."
