Team Nigeria’s chances of adding more medals to her kitty gets brighter with the beginning of events in Wrestling at the ongoing XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
The venue for Wrestling is at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and Technical Director of Nigerian Wrestling Federation, Damian Ohaike has predicted more medals swoop for Team Nigeria.
‘’We’ve never disappointed when it comes to Wrestling. We’re going to do well and I am sure that more medals will be won by my matsmen and women”, Ohaike said.
Nigerian wrestlers have made their marks in the mats and are equally known by their opponents as tough nuts.
‘’We know ourselves by virtue of the fact that we meet at events. But we hold the ace. But they will be surprised by the skill and technicality of the female wrestlers. They are so good that they will rule the mats”, Ohaike said noting that the males, too, would win medals for Nigeria.
At the Commonwealth Games, the Wrestlers would only wrestle in the Freestyle events as the Greco-Roman was not approved. ‘’We’re taking part in the Freestyles. We’re good to go”, Ohaike assured.
