In the snatch, Lawal made a lift of 90kg which was a games’ record before replicating the feat with 116kg in the clean and jerk which was another record.

Lawal becomes the second Nigerian to win a medal on Sunday after Edidiong Umoafia won bronze in men’s weightlifting.

Also, she is the second Nigerian to win gold at the games after Adijat Olarinoye emerged victorious in her weightlifting category on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian men’s table tennis team are guaranteed a medal following their semi-final qualification on Sunday.

They edged Malaysia 3-2 to progress to the last four where they will face India.
