Blessing Oborududu Qualifies For Olympics Women’s Wrestling Final.

Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu has advanced into the Final of the women’s freestyle wrestling event at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics and is guaranteed either a silver or gold medal at the games.

The Bayelsa born wrestler seamlessly floored Mongolia’s Battsetseg Soronzonbold 7-2 in the semi-finals of the women’s 68kg freestyle.

She had defeated Azerbaijani’s Elis Manolova and Meerim Zhumanazarova of Kyrgyzstan to advance to her first Olympic semi-finals, before defeating Soronzonbold.

She will now compete in the Gold medal match on Tuesday against America’s Tamyra Mensah-Stock and becomes the first Nigerian to ever reach the final of a wrestling event in the Olympics.
