 Tokyo Olympics: Nigeria now 64th on medals table, China top with 32 gold

Team Nigeria occupy the 64th position on the medals table as Tokyo  2020 Olympics events enter Day 11.

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 at the Tokyo Olympics.

Brume recorded a 6.97 metres 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 who 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 lead the medals table with 32 gold, followed by United States, 24; Japan, 19; and Australia 14.
