It’s Another Paralympic Gold Medal For Nigeria!!

I’m so proud of the performance of our Nigerian athletes at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Like I reported yesterday, the country’s medal tally is steadily increasing!

 Loveline Obiji yesterday clinched the fifth gold medal for Team Nigeria. She’s a power-lifter weighing 82.50kg. Her final lift of 145kg was 10kg less than the world and Paralympic record but enough to beat all opposition to pick the gold medal.

Loveline Obiji became the fourth Nigerian woman to claim gold at the Paralympic Games.

Her effort means Nigeria now has five gold, five silver one bronze medal, and is 12th position on the medals table.

Congratulations Loveline, congratulations Team Nigeria!
