C/WEALTH GAMES: Nigerian Wrestlers Resume Training


Nigeria wrestling team have temporarily resumed training ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games billed for Australia between 4 and 15 April 2018.

The wrestlers had boycotted their training camp last week in protest of the nonpayment of their accumulated allowances for various African and International Wrestling Championships.

One of the wrestlers said that the team decided to resume training in order not to jeopardize their chances of winning medals as usual at the Gold Coast 2018.

It is gathered that the President of Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Daniel Igali and other federation presidents met with the Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung and the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Olusade Adesola in Abuja on Tuesday.

Igali said that the meeting was to strategize ahead of the the Commonwealth Games, even as he confirmed the wrestlers return to training.
