'Unto Nigeria, another potential sprint queen is born' - a lady that could rule the tracks for a long time.

Oluwatobiloba Amusan is aged 20 and she has her eyes set on nothing but greatness.

The United States-based athlete says she is taking one step per time ahead of next month's IAAF World Championships in London.

Tobi, who has been enjoying a blistering season at her school, the University of Texas, gave home fans a glimpse of how fast she can go at the recently held Warri Relays & CAA Grand Prix.

Speaking with Bounce Sports after her win in Ozoro, Delta State, Amusan says she is by no means weighed down by the high expectations that she should win a medal for Nigeria in London.

"Sincerely, I can not make any promises that I will do this or that in London, what I can say is that I will do my best and take each race as they come, I am not under any kind pressure but the target is to do well," she said.

Tobi ranks among the world's best in the Women's 100m Hurdles.

She did not emerge from the blues - she has been inching her way slowly to the top with amazing performances at the age grade.

She won gold in the 100 metres hurdles event at the 2015 African Junior Athletics Championships in Addis Ababa.

Amusan and perhaps Blessing Okagbare remain Nigeria's brightest medal prospects in London where the world's best athletes will be converging for the 16th edition of IAAF World Championships to be staged from August 5 to 13.
