Team Nigeria has one more chance to win a Gold medal at the Rio Olympics before it ends this weekend after Blessing Okagbare alongside Gloria Asumnu, Jennifer Madu and Agnes Osazuwa qualified for the finals of women’s 4x100m relay.
Doreen Amata failed to qualify for the next round of the women’s high jump while Stephen Mozia failed to make qualification in the men’s shop put. Divine Oduduru crashed out of the men’s 200m semis, after coming second behind Usain Bolt in their first round heat on Tuesay.
Adekuoroye Odunayo and Blessing Oborodudu failed to reach the medal stages in their women’s wrestling events as after they crashed out in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
Oborodudu was beaten by Mongolia’s Soronzombold Battesetseg in their 69kg bout while Adekuoroye was humiliated by Sweden’s Sofia Mattson in the 63kg fight.
