13th African Games: Igali commends Nigerian Female Wrestlers over gold rush

Posted : 12 March 2024

The President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Daniel Igali, has praised the Nigerian female wrestlers for winning six gold medals at the ongoing African Games in Ghana.

It was an atmosphere of joy and excitement for Nigeria after sweeping all six gold medals at the female wrestling event on Sunday.

Odunayo Adekuoroye, Blessing Oborududu, Mercy Genesis, Christiana Ogunsanya, Esther Kolawole, and Hannah Reuben all clinched gold medals.

An elated Igali gave kudos to the female wrestlers for complementing their efforts in training with the incredible show at the female event.

"I thank the Lord for the victory because we’ve been training, but in all of this, I’m so excited for these girls who deserve it.

"Also, I would like to thank the Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, for always supporting these athletes; his support enabled us to shine like we did today."

The wrestling event continues on Monday as men’s freestyle wrestlers take to the mat.
