With the Commonwealth Games closing today, the Nigerian delegation will be celebrating its foremost commonwealth games participation with a record never before set by the team in an edition it entered just 6 sporting events.
Though Nigeria's first Gold medal was stripped of the winner, the team did however put up a spectacular performance to place 8 on the medal standing with 36 medals(11 Gold, 11 Silver and 14 Bronze); 1 more than they won in India 4 years ago.
#TeamNigeria ended the Delhi games on the 9th position with 35 medals(11 Gold, 10 Silver and 14 Bronze medals).
One good thing about this edition of the #Glasgow2014 Commonwealth Games is the commitment of the government and the sports commission in ensuring that the team gets all that is required for a successful outing and also future campaigns.
The Team Nigeria Athletes will be leaving the #Glasgow2014 Games with one of its very own, Blessing Okagbare as a record holder which she set as she cruised to a 100m Gold in 10.85 seconds, and also carting the 200m.
Okagbare again led the Women 4x100m relay team to silver in 42.92 secs, just as the 4x400 women team also won silver with a time of 3:24:71 on Saturday night, all behind Jamiaca.
The Women stood out for the Nigerian team in the wins and the medals with 21 medals (9 Gold, 6 Silver, 6 Bronze) against the Men's 15(2 Gold, 5 Silver, 8 Bronze).
Had she not been sanctioned Chika Amalaha's Gold winning lift would have also stood as a Games record.
