Silver Medalist Blessing Oborodudu and bronze medalist Ese Brume have been given a cash reward of $10,000 and $7500, respectively by the Federal Government of Nigeria for their achievements at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in a ceremony held at Grand Prince Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
Oborodudu and Brume were presented their cash by the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare.
“There’s no point delaying the reinforcement of these athletes who have made the country proud, that is the reason they were rewarded immediately for their record breaking performance,” Dare said.
Silver medallist Oborududu also became the first Nigerian to win an Olympic medal in wrestling.
“I am just super excited and I want to say thank you to all my supporters and the Federal Government of Nigeria for the encouragement,” Oborodudu said.
