Nigeria took home 35 medals in total, including 12 gold, 9 silver, and 14 bronze. Since the West African team began competing in the Games, this accomplishment represents the most medals earned by the team.
For Nigeria, breaking and creating new records was just as important as winning medals. Oluwatobiloba Amusan’s record-breaking performance in the final of the 100-meter hurdles, when she set a new mark of 12.30 seconds, will be remembered for Team Nigeria’s supremacy at the Games.
Ese Brume, who represented Nigeria at the long-jump competition, also made headlines by making a leap of 7.00 meters. Five records were set overall, including four Commonwealth Games records and one world record, making it the competition’s all-time greatest record.
Kenya won 4 Gold, 5 Silver, and 7 Bronze Medals, while South Africa took second place among the African representatives with 7 Gold, 9 Silver, and 11 Bronze Medals.
Cameroon placed third with three medals, including one gold, one silver, and one bronze, while Uganda placed fourth with three gold medals and two bronze medals.
