The Federal Government has rewarded Blessing Oborududu and Ese Brume with  $10,000 and $7,500 respectively for their impressive outings at the Tokyo Games.

Brume won Nigeria’s first medal in the competition on Tuesday after she finished third in the long jump event while Oborududu got silver in the 68kg women’s freestyle wrestling later on the same day.

The Youths and Sports Ministry had earlier promised to reward the country’s athletes with $5,000 for gold, $3,000 for silver and $2,000 for bronze but increased the prize to $15,000 for gold $10,000 for silver and $7,500 for bronze.
