Team Nigeria's hopes of scooping another medal in the wrestling event have been dashed after Adijat Idris succumbed to Oksana Livach in their women’s freestyle 50 kg Wrestling event.

The 19-year-old had no answers to the questions her Ukrainian opposition threw at her all through the fight as she lost 10-0 and humbly bow out of the Summer Games.
