13th African Games: Nigeria moves up to 4th on Medal Table

Posted : 11 March 2024

Team Nigeria moved from their sleeping position to 4th on day 4 of the ongoing African Games after an impressive Sunday medal overhaul, winning 7 gold medals in wrestling and badminton combined.

With six gold medals from female wrestling and one from badminton on Sunday, Nigeria, now 4th on the table, trails Algeria and South Africa, both 2nd and 3rd respectively, with 8 gold medals each, although the two are tied on points.

Nigeria has garnered 7 gold, 7 silver, and 12 bronze medals so far, totaling 26 as of the time of filing this report.

There are strong indications that Nigeria will win more gold medals today as their men's wrestling team enters various categories of fights.

Egypt, leading the table with 66 medals (36 gold, 14 silver, and 16 bronze), is 29 gold medals away from Nigeria.

The various disciplines in Nigeria will have to leverage the wonderful Sunday performance and see how they can garner more medals to close the gap between Egypt on the medal table.

Meanwhile, the Flying Eagles of Nigeria, who lost their opener against Uganda, will face South Sudan today in their second group game at the Accra stadium at 8:00 pm Ghanaian time.

A win for the Flying Eagles will keep their hopes of qualifying for the semifinals alive, while a loss marks the end of their quest to make football a potentially medal event.
