An Olympic Gold! Nigerian Wrestling Sensation Odunayo Adekuoroye sets Tokyo 2020 Target

Nigerian Wrestling Champion Odunayo Adekuoroye is stuffing up her trophy cabinet and to add to her five African Championship gold medals and Commonwealth Golds, the 26 year-old is creating space for the big one – An Olympic Gold medal.

Adekuoroye is one of the biggest names in the sport and has enjoyed a glittering career, but says there’s one more honor missing from her collection.


“The Olympic Gold,” she said in a Global Sports Update interview.


“I’ve been training, praying and working day and night. Doing everything that I should to make sure next year I come wear the Olympic gold around my neck.”


“My Coach and I started work on the areas where I have struggled and also worked to improve my strengths. We trained in Nigeria and recently I trained in the USA.”


The 2018 Commonwealth Freestyle 57 kg champion is one of Nigeria’s medal hopeful in the event at the Summer Games.
