Two Nigerian kickboxers, Olakunle Awoyele and Caroline Amado, will represent Africa at the 2013 World Combat Games in St. Petersburg, Russia, after the duo won gold and silver respectively at the African Kickboxing Championships in Antananarivo, Madagascar, late last month.

Nigeria emerged sixth at the 12-nation tournament. Another Nigerian, Akeem Sadiku, from Oyo State, won a bronze medal in the -67kg Low Kick category.

Nigeria Army’s Awoyele, the current African champion in the -71kg Full Contact Category, was voted as one of the best fighters of the event. He recorded the fastest knockout of the tournament – less than 10 seconds – in the final against El Bahri Miloud from Morocco.
