This year’s edition just concluded in Hammamet, Tunisia, and not only did she keep up with her impressive energy by defending her title, but she was also named the most outstanding female wrestler in the competition.

Nigeria had 10 female wrestlers at the championships, but Adekuoroye outshined all of them by beating Senegal’s Jeannette Sambou and Algeria’s Chaimaa Aouissi to make it into the semifinals. She then went on to crush Tunisia’s Dorssaf Gharssi before taking out Cameroon’s Essone Tiako in just 29 seconds.

According to The Guardian, her accomplishment helped Nigeria to finish tops at the championships with an impressive five gold, two silver and two bronze medals. She will also represent the country at the World Championships in Kazakhstan this September.
