World Wrestling Championship:- three wrestlers to fly Nigeria’s flag

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Nigeria Wrestling Federation has confirmed that the country will be represented by just three athletes at the 2020 World Wrestling Championships in Belgrade, the Serbian capital from December 12 to 20.

This follows the report last week that there was uncertainty around the team attending the tournament due to lack of funds.

Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, has approved the federation’s bid to have wrestlers at the competition but only three female athletes and a coach will make the contingent.

World Championships silver and bronze medalist, Odunayo Adekuoroye will lead the pack as well as African champions, Aminat Adeniji and Blessing Okorodudu.
