Rio 2016 ; Team Nigeria Day 12 update

Team Nigeria is still waiting to win its first medal of the competition after Day 12 at the Olympic games.

There will be no Gold medal for Samson Siasia’s dream team after they lost 2-0 in their Men’s Football semifinal match on Wednesday to Germany. Dream Team will next play Honduras in the 3rd place match for a chance to win the Bronze medal on offer.

It didn’t also go so well for Team Nigeria’s Wrestlers when they took to the mat, as some of the athletes competing on Wednesday didn’t progress to the next stage. African Champion Aminat Adeniyi lost 3-1 to Petra Olli in 58kg with Hannah Reuben also defeated by Dorothy Yeats in the Women’s freestyle 69kg.

Meanwhile in Athletics, Ese Brume finished 5th in the women’s Long Jump final with a mark of 6.81m, just -2cm shy of her Personal Best of 6.83m.

Both Divine Oduduru and Oluwatobiloba Amusan competed in the semis of  the men’s 200m and women’s 100m Hurdles, but they didn’t make it to the final of their respective events.
