Lauritta Onye started on Saturday with a bronze medal in women’s F40 shot put event, before Flora Ugunnwa sealed the day with gold in the F54 Javelin event.
The two medals won on Saturday ensured Nigeria finish with four gold, one silver and five bronze medals.
Sportstalkafrica further reported that Lauritta competed under very difficult conditions on the wet and slippery grounds of the stadium and threw 8.29 metres.
That was not enough to get gold medalist Sliwinska Renata of Poland whose 8.75 metres cancelled off Lauritta’s game record of 8.40m set in Rio 2016, and Djelal Salem of Algeria secured the silver with 8.33 metres.
However, Flora Ugunnwa threw 18.39 metres in F54 javelin finals to turn the table around to ensure team Nigeria grab a gold to end their campaign.
