Nigeria wins second medal at Commonwealth Games

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi won the second silver medal for Nigeria in Men's Shot Put

After failing to make the podium in the first four days of action at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia, the medals are now coming in for Team Nigeria.

Just after the jinx was broken for Nigeria by the men’s table tennis team who won silver medal, another silver medal has been added to the country’s haul.

Chukwuebuka Enekwechi won the second silver medal for Nigeria in Men’s Shot Put with a best throw of 21.14m behind Tomas Walsh of New Zeland, who won gold with 21.41m.

Canada’s Tim Nedow took the bronze with 20.91m.

Hopefully, more medals will be added to Team Nigeria haul with some of the country’s athlete billed to compete in some final events later on Monday.
