Nigeria seems to be stacking up the gold medals at the ‘2016 Paralympic Games’ in ‘Rio’, ‘Brazil’ as they claimed their 7th gold medal of the competition.
‘Flora Ugwunwa’ set a Women's Javelin-F54 event Paralympic and World record after recording a throw of ‘20.25m’ after six attempts.
Ugwunwa beat Tunisia's ‘Hania Aidi’ who won the silver medal after recording a throw of ‘18.88m’ and South Africa's ‘Ntombizanele Situ’ who won bronze after recording a throw of ‘17.9m’.
Nigeria has been on a bit of roll in this year's competition winning seven gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze medal.
A couple of days back, Nigeria's Bose Omolayo also set a new Paralympic and World record at the Women's-79kg powerlifting event after she lifted 138kg. [Read here if you missed it]
Nigeria failed to pick up any gold at the Olympic Games and managed just one bronze in the men's football competition but have more than made up for their lethargic display at the Olympic Games with 10 medals at the Paralympic Games.
Congratulations to Flora Ugwunwa as she makes Nigeria proud yet again.
