Nigeria earned one silver and one bronze medals from the Games, with a slew of promising performances as a number of athletes reached the final of their events. For the first time since 1996, a Nigerian athlete was in the final of the glamour event of the Games – the men’s 100m sprint. Young hurdler Oluwatobiloba Amusan narrowly missed netting a medal as she finished fourth in the women’s high hurdles final.

The adoption was announced by the Bayelsa Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence  Ewhrujakpo, when the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, paid a working visit to the state where he visited the wrestling team and also inspected some facilities.
