Three Nigerian athletes have created records at the ongoing Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
The trio are two table tennis stars, Segun Toriola and Aruna Quadri, as well as Rower, Chierika Ukogu.
Toriola had his seventh appearance in the current games, equaling the table tennis record and making him the most capped African Olympian.
Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri set another continental record after the 2014 ITTF star became the first African to reach the quarterfinals of men’s singles event at Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Ukogu, on the other hand, qualified for top classification in the rowing event in Rio.
She is Nigeria’s first-ever rower to have gone that far in the Olympics.
She placed fifth in the third quarter-final of the women’s single sculls after clocking a time of 7:54.44 seconds.
She will now participate in the semi finals C/D 1 event on Wednesday.
This is the 23-year-old’s first-ever appearance in the Olympics.
