Tokyo 2020 Paralympics: Team Nigeria Finishes  33rd

Team Nigeria finished in the thirty third position on the medals table of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and fourth in Africa. 

With a total of ten medals won which include four gold, one silver and five bronze, Team Nigeria became the fourth best African team behind Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.

Represented by twenty two athletes, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics had one of Team Nigeria’s smallest contingents to an international competition and yet her ten medals were just two short of twelve, her record number of medals won at a Paralympic Games.

According to Team Nigeria’s Chef de Mission, Mr. Peter Nelson who is also the Director of Planning, Monitoring and Information in the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, the athletes did Nigeria proud, considering their number.

He appreciated the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, and all those who contributed to making the Team record huge success and realising their dreams and as well as made it possible for the Nigerian anthem to be heard ten good times at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
