Gaborone 2014 African Youth Games: Team Nigeria increases medal haul


…As Nwuche hails Amalaha over new African record

Team Nigeria continued from where it stopped on Sunday afternoon, as the country won four more gold medals yesterday. Nigeria benefitted from international weightlifting rules, which saw the gold medals won in the weightlifting event on Sunday increased from four to six. Three other medals were won in Judo, Badminton and Table Tennis.
Meanwhile, President of Nigeria Weightlifting Federation (NWF) Hon. Chibudom Nwuche had given a pat on the back to Nigerian teenage lifter, Joy Chika Amalaha who on Sunday set a new African record in the weightlifting event of the on going African Youth Games in Gaborone, Botswana.
Amalaha, who won gold for Nigeria in the 58kg body weight category did put up an amazing performance as she lifted 87kg in snatch to set a new African record. The 14 year old Ebonyi State born lifter went ahead to lift 102kg in clean and jerk, an effort that was equally a new African record.
An elated Nwuche, while congratulating Amalaha for her feat noted that he saw the splendid performance coming, going by the high level of discipline always displayed by the athlete.
“I am happy with the splendid showing of Amalaha in Botswana. She has really done Nigeria proud by not just winning gold, but setting a new African record. Amalaha is a bundle of discipline. She displayed that last year in Malaysia, when she competed and won gold for us in the junior category.
“She is a lifter that will go places and the Nigeria Weightlifting Federation (NWF) will continue to monitor her performance and encourage her to become a world beater,” Nwuche stated.
The NWF boss also commended the other Nigerian lifter that won gold in the male 56kg category, Emmanuel Appah, even as he expressed confidence that Nigeria will leave Botswana as African champions.
