Nigeria commonwealth gold medalist Odunayo Adekuoroye says she is targeting a gold medal at the 2019 World Wrestling Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan.

TheCommonwealth champion made it clear in Abuja on  Monday that she had begun preparations since the 2018 National Sports Festival (NSF).

The 25-year-old who won a gold medal in her fourth appearance in 57kg NSF 2018, however, appealed for sponsorship to enable her to participate in more tournaments ahead of the world championship.

“I am targeting a gold medal at the world championship. I have started preparations but it’s not being easy she said.

“One needs about a 100 bout before the championship and I need sponsors to be able to attend events and get myself more prepared,” the 2015 World Wrestling Championship bronze medalist said. (NAN)
