Blessing Oborududu won an Olympic Games’ silver medal in the women’s freestyle 68kg, the first won by a Nigerian wrestler in history. The 32-year-old won the Tokyo 2020 silver medal on Tuesday, August 3, in her third appearance at the Olympics Games since London 2012.
The final against Tamyra Mensah-Stock could be the last time we will see Blessing Oborududu grappling on the mat. “I think this Olympics will be my last Olympics,” she said upon qualification for Tokyo 2020.
After three Olympics she had set herself a target of clinching a medal at the World championships or Olympics. With that done, the Business Administration graduate now plans to retire after her long career, but she might stay heavily involved in Nigerian wrestling.

Angela Bassett has reached a huge milestone. The legendary actress is reportedly getting a massive payday for her work on Fox’s hit drama series, “9-1-1.” Not only has she starred on the show for all 4 seasons, but she also serves as an executive producer on 9-1-1 and the spinoff, “9-1-1: Lone Star.”
Bassett reportedly received a pay increase allegedly making a whopping $450,000 per episode. If this amount is accurate, that would put her in the ranks of the top salaries on network television for any actor, male or female. Plus, she is likely to be the highest-paid actress of color on any broadcast drama series.
