Nigeria's Edidiong Umoafia wins 3 gold medals in Weightlifting at 13th Africa Games

Posted : 13 March 2024

Nigeria's medal haul at the ongoing 2023 Africa Games in Ghana received a significant boost as Edidiong Umoafia secured three gold medals in Weightlifting.

In his debut appearance in the 67kg men's category, Umoafia clinched all three gold medals in snatch, clean & jerk, and Total.

He successfully lifted 135kg in snatch and 165kg in clean and jerk, accumulating a total of 300kg, thereby securing three gold medals for Team Nigeria.

Umoafia's achievement has elevated Nigeria's Weightlifting medal tally to eight, following the impressive performances of King Kalu (two bronze medals) and Favour (two silver and a bronze medal) that kicked off the campaign on Sunday.

Expectations are high for more medals as the weightlifting event enters Day 3 at the University of Ghana, Legon.
