BREAKING: Blessing Oborududu Wins Silver For Nigeria In Tokyo

Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu suffered a 1-4 loss to Tamyra Marianna Stock Mensah of the United States in the final of Tokyo Olympic women’s wrestling event to claim a silver medal.

Oborududu has won a Gold medal at the African Wrestling Championships every year for the last 11 years, except for 2012 when she did not enter due to competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics.

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.
