Delhi 2010: Nigeria's Wins Another Gold Medal! by Mortiple(m): 2:36pm On Oct 06, 2010
The dude's name is: JOEL AGBONAVBARE.

He defeated an Indian wrestler in what I consider a great match-up. Wow! You can imagine what it means to defeat an opponent in front of his home crowd. Naija's never-say-die spirit was at play!

Unfortunately, another Nigerian by name Talaran Mamman lost to an Australian in a Gold medal match.

Earnestly, Nigeria has great potentials in virtually everything including sports to be a first-world country, just that our ACCURSED politicians wouldn't let it be.

Note: you can watch the Commonwealth Games live on DSTV Supersports 7.

God BLESS Nigeria but DESTROY our corrupt politicians!!!

and we didnt even prepare. Great job they are doing out there but I dont think the CWG is very competitive. I remember in Manchester 02, we won 10 gold and 10 bronze and we finished 10th overall and at the Athens olympics in 2004, we couldnt win a single gold medal. We could only win two or three bronze medals

^^^ The only real threat to Nigeria in Commonwealth games are:

Australia
England
Canada
South Africa
Jamaica

And out of these, only 3 have historically had strong sprinters that compete with Nigeria (England, Canada, Jamaica, and maybe T&T).

Jamaica is using their C-team for the Commonwealth at the moment.

At Olympics, the competition in sprints intensifies when you add:

USA
Russia
France
Brazil

It is more so as USA is dominant (along with Jamaica now) and there are other developed nations and carribeans with a gem here or there in some activities, so if we are not dominating in Commonwealth sprints, then we should forget Olympics.
