Team Nigeria’s Para-athlete Goodness Nwachukwu broke two world records in quick successions, to win gold in women’s F42 Discus event at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games on Thursday.
Nwachukwu’s feat means Nigeria now has four gold medals and have taken their tally to 10.
In her first attempt, Nwachukwu threw a mark of 34.84m to get off on a perfect start.
She then went on to improve on her world record by setting a new one of 36.56m.
Australia’s Sarah Edmiston won silver while the bronze medal went to Naibili Vatunisolo of Fiji.
Earlier on Thursday, Innocent Nnamdi won bronze for Nigeria in men’s powerlifting and Ifeanyi Onyekwere qualified for the semi-finals in men’s super heavyweight.
