Silver Medalist Blessing  Oborududu  and bronze medalist Ese Brume
have been rewarded with their  promised cash of $10,000 and $7,500
respectively.
Oborududu and Brume were presented their cash by the Honourable
Minister of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare in a ceremony 
held at Grand Prince Hotel, Tokyo Japan.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Minister said there’s no point delaying
the reinforcement of the athletes who have made the country proud,  and
that is the reason  they were rewarded immediately for their record-
breaking   performances.
Chioma Ajunwa was the first person who won  gold medal for Nigeria in
the  women’s long  jump  event at  the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games , 
Brume thus follows suit with a bronze; while  Oborududu is the first
Nigerian Wrestler to win an Olympics medal.
