Wrestling: Team Nigeria arrive Budapest for World Championships

Eight-time African champion Blessing Oborududu and her namesake, Blessing Onyebuchi – a 2018 Commonwealth silver medalist, on Sunday morning arrived Budapest, Hungary ahead of their participation at the ongoing 2018 Senior World Wrestling Championships.
The duo will be joined by sensational Odunayo Adekuoroye, who narrowly missed winning a gold medal for Nigeria at the event last year, Commonwealth champion Aminat Adeniyi and coach Purity Akuh, who are all expected to arrive Budapest on Monday aboard a Turkish Airline flight.
After over a month of intensive camping in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, the all-female quartet of Adekuoroye, Oborududu, Adeniyi and Onyebuchi will be hoping to do Nigeria proud in Hungary when they begin competition on Tuesday.
At the 2017 edition of the tournament in Paris, 2-time Commonwealth champion, Adekuoroye claimed Nigeria’s first-ever silver medal at the event, while Commonwealth Games gold medalist, Oborududu missed out of winning a bronze medal by whiskers following an 8-7 loss to Colombian, Jackeline Castillo in a third-place bout.
Also in Budapest is president of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation Hon. Daniel Igali, who arrived earlier to be part of the United World Wrestling Congress.
The 2018 Senior World Wrestling Championships which started on 20th October will come to an end on 28th October.
