2018 CWG: Team Nigeria Wins Second Medal
The medals are beginning to trickle in for Team Nigeria at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia after initially going four days without anything to celebrate.
Moments after Nigeria picked a silver medal in the men's team event in Table Tennis, Chukwuebuka Enekwechi became Nigeria’s first Track and Field medallist; winning another silver medal in the Shot Put event.
Enekwechi smashed his Personal Best, replacing it with a new lifetime best of 21.14m to win the Silver medal in the men’s Shot put on Monday.
The thrower rose to the occasion in his maiden outing at the Games to finish behind reigning World Indoor and outdoor Champion, Tom Walsh of New Zealand who won the event with 21.41m.
Canada’s Tim Nedow settled for Bronze with a Season’s Best of 20.91m.
Nigeria was very close to adding another medal in the 100m men's event but Seye Ogunlewe was narrowly beaten to fourth place.
