Commonwealth 2022:Team Nigeria win another Gold and a Silver Medal


Nigerian weightlifters have continued to do the country proud in Birmingham, as Rafiatu Folashade clinch another gold medal and set a new record.

Nigeria’s first gold at the games was won by Adijat Adenike Olarinoye.

Adijat competed in the women’s 55kg. She lifted 92kg in the snatch, and 111kg in clean & jerk, for a total of 203kg.

Weightlifter Edidiong Umoafia won a bronze medal in the men’s 67kg category.

Meanwhile, Nigeria’s men’s table tennis team has advanced to the semi-finals of the event.

After a sluggish start at NEC Hall 3 on Sunday, an inspired Nigerian side, led by Quadri Aruna, bounced back to defeat Malaysia 3-2.

Nigeria join Singapore, who defeated Canada, in the semis, which hold on Monday.
