Nigerian wrestling dynamite Odunayo Adekuoroye claimed Nigeria’s sixth gold at the 2022 ongoing Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on Friday.

Adekuoroye won the gold in the Women’s 57kg Freestyle Wrestling after beating Anshu Malik of India.

With that win, Adekuoroye successfully defended her 2018 Commonwealth crown she won in Gold Coast. She crushed her opponent 6-4 in the final to smile home with the gold.
