Nigerian wrestler and 8-time African champion, Blessing Oborududu, came from behind to defeat Canada’s Danielle Lappage 4-3 and claim the gold medal at stake in the 68kg weight category at the Commonwealth Games in Australia. On her way to claiming the gold medal, the 29-year old Niger Delta University undergraduate had brushed aside Lilian Ntigha (Kenya), Sherin Sultana (Bangladesh) and Divya Kakran.

Her wild, minute-long victory celebration, left the referee waiting to declare a victor.

The Nigerian wrestler started by rolling along the mat to the edge, was picked up by her coach and carried back into the middle, and just as the ref was about to raise her arm, Oborududu dropped to the mat and began rolling around again.

Oborududu was still screaming as the ref called for the pair to shake hands. Her opponent, Lappage was less impressed, before walking away as Oborududu appeared to open her arms for a hug.

You have done well my sister

However it is a pity you have raised high the flag of a nation that always put its own down at default level.

Let's take this world champ as an example - Blessing Oborududu, 29-year old Niger Delta University undergraduate.

Before her graduation it is already know that she can not even go for NYSC, she would be exempted at best

Knowing fully well that NYSC discharge certificate is more valued in Nigeria than your actual degree certificate and the exemption certificate is written over age all over it, which is a very good recipe the employer of labour use to reject fresh graduates.

I wonder who makes these rules in Nigeria, latest I hear of now is 24yr with masters ? Could they have done this some 17years ago? Just tell the masses only private uni guys get the jobs and the rest goes for Npower angry

Please don't quote me about entrepreneurship, the political rulers done have their wards in that stuff. They are the ones sitting at the corner office looking at you from a distance with your 20years job experience and still scrabbled like four to one desk with dividers...

Great. Years ago, russian minister of sports travelled out and was a guest at one of the tennis competitions. Intrigued by the game and how it would be of benefit to his economy, he came backam and said that anyone interested in going into lawn tennis should come for5h and they would be trained and sponsored. Maria sharapova was one ot those who trained there
One would think that our minister of sports would probably organize say a swimming competition especially in the riverine areas where these folks have been swimming for ages. Who knows, a micheal Phelps may just spring forth.
