Nigeria Occupy 64th Position On Medals Table In Tokyo Olympics

Team Nigeria occupy the 64th position on the medals table as Tokyo 2020 Olympics events enter Day 11.

This was after Brume and Blessing Obodururu gave Nigeria bronze and silver medals respectively.

The Federal Government had announced a reward of $15, 000, $10,000, $7,500 for gold, silver, and bronze medalists at the Tokyo Olympics.

Brume recorded a 6.97 metres jump in the final of the event at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium to win her first Olympic medal and Nigeria’s first at this Games.

The 25-year-old Nigerian placed behind American Brittney Reese who claimed the silver medal with a jump of 6.97m.

Brume had to settle for bronze because her second-best effort of 6.67m was inferior to Reese’s 6.81m.
