Nigerian wrestler and 8-time African champion, Blessing Oborududu, came from behind to defeat Canada’s Danielle Lappage 4-3 and claim the gold medal at stake in the 68kg weight category at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
On her way to claiming the gold medal, the 29-year old Niger Delta University undergraduate had brushed aside Lilian Ntigha (Kenya), Sherin Sultana (Bangladesh) and Divya Kakran.
Her wild, minute-long victory celebration, left the referee waiting to declare a victor.
The Nigerian wrestler started by rolling along the mat to the edge, was picked up by her coach and carried back into the middle, and just as the ref was about to raise her arm, Oborududu dropped to the mat and began rolling around again.
Oborududu was still screaming as the ref called for the pair to shake hands. Her opponent, Lappage was less impressed, before walking away as Oborududu appeared to open her arms for a hug.
