Nigerian wrestling dynamite, Odunayo Adekuoroye, on Friday won the sixth gold for Nigeria at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
The 28-year-old Ondo-born wrestler beat Anshu Malik 7-3 in the women’s 57kg category class to claim her third successive Commonwealth Games gold at the Coventry Arena.
The six-time African champion’s journey to the gold medal was an easy ride as she overpowered all the opponents that came her way.
The win increases Nigeria’s gold medals at the competition to six. The country also has two silver and five bronze medals.
