In preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympics, the Nigeria Wrestling Federation (NWF) has commenced a training camp for wrestlers on Wednesday, May 29th, 2024, in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State.

President NWF Daniel Igali disclosed on Thursday that the Federation had the mandate to ensure that Nigerian wrestlers perform optimally in the wrestling event at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

"We have a mandate to ensure that we strive for podium finishes at the Olympics, which is reason enough to put all machinery in place for optimum performance," Igali stated.

"A total of 6 athletes, 5 females and 1 male led by Tokyo 2020 silver medalist Blessing Oborodudu, will represent Nigeria in the wrestling event at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

"The Wrestling Federation sponsored a two-week camp for the wrestlers earlier this month prior to Mercy Genesis' participation at the World Wrestling Olympic qualifier in Istanbul, Turkey.

"Wrestlers going for the Paris Olympics: 68kg Blessing Oborodudu, 57kg Odunayo Adekuoroye, 53kg Ogunsanya Christinah, Esther Kolawole 62kg, and 125kg Ashton Mutuwa - the only qualified male wrestler heading to Paris," he said.
