African Games 2023: Nigerian female wrestlers raise winning bar

Nigerian wrestlers set new heights with their impressive displays at the 13th African Games on Sunday.

The female wrestlers took home all the gold medals on offer on the day.

It was similar to the feat achieved by male wrestlers at the 1991 edition of the African Games hosted by Egypt.

The Nigerian lads won all ten gold medals on offer then.

Experienced wrestlers, Blessing Oborodudu and Odunayo Adekuroye have now won gold medals in three consecutive editions of the games.

Young sensations like Mercy Genesis and Esther Kolawole got gold in their first outing at the African Games while Ogunsanya Christiana also got gold on her debut outing.

Hannah Reuben won her first-ever gold medal having lost in the final in 2015.
