A day after sealing her place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Commonwealth champion Odunayo Adekuoroye won a bronze medal at the ongoing 2019 Senior World Wrestling Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, her third medal in the history of the competition Completesports.com reports.

After losing in the semi-finals to the eventual champion Risako Kawai of Japan, the World No. 3 in the 57 kg category outclassed Moldova’s Anastasia Nichita 10-0 via technical superiority in the bronze medal match on Thursday to add to the bronze and silver medals she won in the competition in 2015 (USA) and 2017 (France) respectively.

“As you can see, we (Nigeria) came here with five girls and a male, who hasn’t got any medal, so it was like I really need to make my country proud,” the 25-year-old told United World Wrestling after her victory.

Adekuoroye added: “I am so very happy because everyone is my fan and they have been wishing me well even before I qualified. So I am so very glad that I did not put them to shame. I’m happy.

“For my coach Akuh Purity, I know he is proud of me now, and I am so very proud of him for training me.”
