Team Nigeria ended their campaign on a blistering note at the 21st Senior Athletics Championships; winning three gold medals on the final day of action at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State.
The last set of gold medals for Nigeria came in the Triple Jump Event, 400m Women’s Hurdles Event and the 4x400m Women’s Relay event.
Though Nigeria won a silver medal in the 200m event and two more bronze medals in the javelin men and 4x400m men’s event it was not enough to give Nigeria a better finish in the biennial athletics championships as the
hosts finished third overall on the medals table same way it was at the last edition in Durban 2016.
Team Nigeria had a total medal haul of nine gold, five silver, and five bronze medals.
The next edition of the championship will take place in Algeria.
