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. After Brume and Oborududu gave the country something to cheer about, the ministry was quick to reward them.

“There’s no point delaying the reinforcement of these athletes who have made the country proud, that is the reason they were rewarded immediately for their record breaking performance,” the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare said while presenting the prize to both athletes in a ceremony held at a hotel in Tokyo on Tuesday.
