Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu has made the country proud by winning silver at the ongoing 2020 Olympic games. Even though she lost the final of the 68kg women’s freestyle wrestling event 4-1 to America’s Tamyra Mensah-Stock, she went home with silver.

Oborududu is the first Nigerian wrestler ever to win a silver medal at the Games.

Oborududu, who is also the first-ever Nigerian to win an Olympics medal in wrestling, qualified for the final after defeating Mongolia’s Soronzonboldyn Battsetseg 7-2 in the semi-finals.

She had earlier defeated Kyrgyzstan’s Meerim Zhumanazarova 3-2 in the quarter-finals, after seeing off Azerbaijan’s Elis Manolova in the Round of 16.
