Reuben Hannah, a corporal of the Nigerian Army, has won gold in the women’s 76kg event at the ongoing World Military Wrestling Championship in Azerbaijan. 

Reuben represented the Nigerian Army at the 36th edition of the wrestling competition organised for militaries across the globe.

In a video uploaded on the X account of the Nigerian Army on Saturday, Reuben could be seen jubilating with the country’s flag around her shoulders in celebration across the ring following her triumph.

Speaking on her victory, the officer said her success was predicated on the “top-notch” preparation she was provided for the competition.

“I want to thank the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, and other service chiefs for ensuring wrestlers in the Nigerian Military attended the 36th World Military Wrestling Championship,” Reuben said.

“The preparations for the tournament were top-notch because we were provided with all the necessary logistics to excel.”

Reuben won the silver medal in the women’s 76kg wrestling event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and represented Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
