Chiemerie delivered  Nigeria’s fourth gold medal spectacularly; breaking the world record twice before claiming the top prize.

Oluwafemiayo, on her part,  clinched gold in the women’s heavyweight powerlifting event.

She also broke the world record after lifting 130, 150, and 155 kilograms to score a cumulative 123.4 points on Thursday evening, while Omolayo Bose Patricia won the silver medal in the same category to bring the country’s medal haul to twelve in Birmingham.

Ofili in lane 5 will be competing with Veronica Pereira, Chalottee Wingfield, Gina Bass, Natallian Whyte, Hannah Brier, Abi Galpin, and Jacinta Beecher.
