Nigeria wins first medal at 2018 Commonwealth Games

Nigeria on Monday won its first medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Team Nigeria won silver after being defeated by India in the men’s table tennis final.

The Indian team dispatched Nigeria 3-0 to secure gold.

Nigeria qualified for the final of the table tennis event after defeating England 3-2 in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, Nigerian sprinter, Seye Ogunlewe narrowly missed out of finishing in a medal position in the men’s 100 metres final of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia on Monday.

Ogunlewe placed fourth after recording a personal best time of 10.19 secs in a photo-finish with Jamaican athlete Yohan Blake.

The Jamaican also posted 10.19 secs.

However, it was Blake who was given third-place and the bronze medal after a much-deliberated review by the officials.

The other Nigerian in the final, Enoch Adegoke, finished seventh with a time of 10.35 secs.

Akani Simbine from South Africa won the 100m gold with a time of 10.03 secs, while his compatriot Henricho Bruintjies won silver with a time of 10.17 secs.
