The Nigerian Paralympic team are clearly at the Rio games to slay and we are here for it.

They are currently no 11 on the medal table and have won 8 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Some of our athletes have even broken world records including Paul Kehinde and Josephine Orji at the male and female Powerlifting events respectively.

This is nothing new as our Paralympic athletes have consistently put their best foot forward at international games and events.

We are super proud of all of them and wish them the very best of luck. Go team Nigeria!
