Team Nigeria amassed 12 Gold, 9 silver and 14 bronze, a total of 35 medals. The gold medal haul is the highest at a single Commonwealth Games for Team Nigeria, representing its best performance ever.
This impressive outing ensured Team Nigeria also finished as the best ranked African country on the medals table, placing 7th.
Sports Minister Sunday Dare described the performance as excellent, inspirational, phenomenal, commendable and commanding.
His words: “This is a performance like no other,” Dare said on Monday, “many new records were set, old records broken, long standing jinxes of not getting on the podium in some sports were destroyed.
“This sign posts a brighter and better future for Nigerian sports development
“I congratulate all our sports men and women, not just those that won medals but all those who competed. I appreciate their sacrifice, commitment, confidence and patriotism.
“I am proud of them, Nigeria is proud of them and I believe that the Nigerian spirit that led them to these performances will lead them to the place of excellence,” Dare said.
