This was after Ese Brume and Blessing Obodururu gave Nigeria bronze and silver medals.

The Federal Government had announced a reward of 15, 000 dollars, 10,000 dollars, 7,500 dollars for gold, silver, and bronze medalists respectively at the Tokyo Olympics.

Brume recorded a 6.97 meters jump in the final of the event at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium to win her first Olympic medal and Nigeria’s first at this Games.

The 25-year-old Nigerian placed behind American Brittney Reese claimed the silver medal with a jump of 6.97m.

Brume had to settle for bronze because her second-best effort of 6.67m was inferior to Reese’s 6.81m.

Oborududu had to settle for the silver medal in the women’s freestyle 68kg event on Tuesday in the Tokyo Olympics wrestling competition in Tokyo.

This was after she failed to overcome Tamyra Mensah-Stock of the U.S, who had beaten her three times earlier, after losing 1-4 in their final match at the Makuhari Mess Hall.

The medal was Nigeria’s first one ever in the wrestling sport since the country’s first-ever appearance at the Olympics in 1952.

China leads the medals table with 32 gold, followed by the United States, 24; Japan, 19; and Australia 14.
