The delegation who have been supporting Team Nigeria have equally announced $2,000 for any athlete who wins gold while a silver medallist would be rewarded with $1,500 and bronze winner with $1,000.
These financial pledge is coming at a time that both officials and athletes are on the edge waiting for Team Nigeria’s first medal.
Meanwhile, all expectations of a possible medal from Weightlifting and 400m Women Athletics events concluded last night yielded no medal. Maryan Usman’s efforts in the +75kg Snatch and Jerk could only place her 9th in the overall ranking while George Patience Okon and Bamgbose Margaret semi final placed them 8th and 7th positions respectively.
