Team Nigeria finishes the Paralympics with 10 medals!
Ugwunwa threw a Season’s Best of 19.39m -on her fifth attempt- which was the highest on the day to defend her Paralympic crown.
She was the last of the field to compete but held her nerves to throw 19.39, more than everyone.
With this win, she continues her Gold Medal streak in this event after winning Gold on her debut in Rio 2016.
Her Gold Medal also brought Team Nigeria’s medal count to 10.
Nigeria won more medals in Powerlifting with six (three Gold Medals, one Silver Medal and two Bronze Medals).
In athletics, Nigeria got three medals-one Gold Medal and two Bronze Medals.
The other medal, a Bronze Medal, came in the Table Tennis event.
