Nigeria has finally been guaranteed a medal in the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
This follows the qualification of Nigeria wrestler, Blessing Oborodudu, who secured a place in the final after a 7-2 win against Soronzobold of Mongolia in the 68kg wrestling event.
The Bayelsa-born wrestler had fought Mareem in a hard 3-2 wrestling to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Blessing is an African wrestling legend who has won a plethora of medals for herself and her country in the past.
