Daniel Igali calls for sustained funding and sponsorship For Wrestling

Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, Daniel Igali, has called for sustained funding and sponsorship of the sport following the country’s historic performance at the recently-concluded Tokyo 2020 Olympics in Japan.

In Tokyo, Commonwealth champion Blessing Oborududu won Nigeria’s first-ever medal in wrestling, claiming silver in the 68kg final.

However, the World and Olympic champion Igali stated that the succession plan won’t materialize without the support and sponsorship from the private and corporate sectors.
