Another Medal for Nigeria at Rio Paralympics as Oyema wins

The physically challenged are making us proud in Rio. Esther Oyema gave Nigeria its third medal of the 2016 Paralympic Games on Saturday by winning a silver medal in the power-lifting competition.

Esther won the medal in the women’s -55 kg event of the competition after finishing second in the event. She won with a lift of 127 kg in the nine-athlete event.

Her first attempt at 127 kg was unsuccessful, she got it right in her second attempt, her third attempt which was at 130 kg was also unsuccessful, otherwise should could have won Gold. Congrats!
