Nigerian wrestling dynamite, Odunayo Adekuoroye, claimed Nigeria’s sixth gold at the 2022 ongoing Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on Friday. The PUNCH reports.
Adekuoroye won the gold in the 57kg Freestyle Wrestling Women’s after defeating Anshu Malik from India.
The 2018 Commonwealth champion defeated her opponent 6-4 in the final to successfully defend the crown she won in Gold Coast four years ago.
En route to the final, the reigning African champion defeated Canadian Hannah Taylor in the semi-final in a reckless 10-0 victory.
The win further boosts Nigeria’s gold medals to six, two silver and five bronze medals so far.
