13th African Games: Nigerian Wrestlers set for more dominance in male event

Posted : 12 March 2024

After securing an incredible six gold medals in six female wrestling categories, Nigerian male wrestlers are set to resume action on Monday.

For the first time in 32 years, Nigeria clinched six gold medals in female wrestling events, repeating the achievement of Nigerian freestyle men in 1991 at the African Games in Cairo, Egypt.

At 10 a.m. in the 125kg category, Issah Fuseini (GHA) will take on Ashton A. A. Mutuwa (NGR), while in the 86kg category, HARRISON O. (NGR) will battle Mahmoud A. (EGY).

Additionally, in the 57kg category, Simeon E. (NGR) will face Kilandi R. (COD)/Frimpong M. (GHA), and Izolo Stephen (NGR) will entertain Ngonda M. (ANG) in the 65kg category.

The first-round matches will be concluded when Nigeria’s Braveman Oyeinkeperemo in the 74kg category takes on Ben M. (TUN).

There is now anticipation that the male wrestlers will make similar attempts to bring more glory to the country, following in the footsteps of their female counterparts.
