Nigeria Wrestling Federation (NWF) has stepped up preparations for the Paris 2024 Olympics with the opening of a training camp for wrestlers that have qualified for the world’s biggest games.

The wrestlers are camping at the wrestling theatre in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

According to the President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Hon. Daniel Igali, the Federation has the mandate to ensure that Nigerian wrestlers perform optimally at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

He said the target of the federation is to ensure that they strive for podium finishes at the Olympics, hence the need to put all machinery in place for optimal performances.

It will be recalled that a total of six athletes, five females and 1 male led by Tokyo 2020 silver medallist, Blessing Oborodudu, will represent Nigeria in the wrestling event at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Early this month, the Wrestling Federation also sponsored a two-week camp for the wrestlers prior to Mercy Genesis’ participation at the World Wrestling Olympic qualifier in Istanbul, Turkey. 

Wrestlers going for the Paris Olympics are: 68kg Blessing Oborodudu, 57kg Odunayo Adekuoroye, 53kg Ogunsanya Christinah and Esther Kolawole 62kg while 125kg is Ashton Mutuwa – the only Nigerian male wrestler heading to Paris.

The 2024 Olympics will be held from July 26 to August 11 in Paris, France.
