From the BBC News website:

“Teenage Nigerian weightlifter Augustina Nkem Nwaokolo has won the first gold medal of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi in the women’s 48kg division. The 17-year-old set a new Games record of 175kg after lifting 77kg in the snatch and 98kg in the clean and jerk to upset home favourite Soniya Chanu.”

Well done Augustina! It’s nice to see a positive story involving Nigeria, and I’m sure all Nigerians are very proud of your achievement. I hope you go on to have a long and successful career in weightlifting.
