Nigerian women in the world of sports are making the country proud in recent times.
Despite the harsh condition of the country, these female sports-women have succeeded in making Nigerians have hope.
The hope Buhari has almost taken away, these women have restored it by showing tenacity of purpose and determination.
At Sauce.NG we bring to you the 4 female Nigerian athletes with record breaking achievement this month of July.
Let’s Go 👇
1. Asisat Oshoala
Asisat Oshoala is a Nigerian and Barcelona women top striker who recently won Confederation of African Football women’s “Player Of The Year” for the 5th time in her career.
This is a record breaking feat as she stands from the tie of Perpetua Nwokocha, another Nigerian female footballer who won same award four times in 2004, 2005, 2010 and 2011.
Asisat’s win meant that Nigeria have won the award for a record 9times with Perpetua winning it 4times and Asisat winning it 5times.
The role Oshoala played in Barcelona’s women team this season obviously helped her in winning the title.
She played a very important role in the team’s Spanish Women’s Super Cup, Copa de la Reina, and the Primera Division engagements.
2. Mimisen Calvin-Onwuka
When Mimisen Calvin-Onwuka served as the video assistant referee for the quarterfinal match between Tunisia and South Africa’s Banyana Banyana, she made history as the first Nigerian assistant referee in the history of a Women’s AFCON.
Calvin-Onwuka had previously participated in the group stage matches against Togo and Tunisia and Burkina Faso and Uganda, both of which Madu officiated.

Nigerian female athelete, Tobi Amusan, easily set another world record for herself in the 100metres hurdles race in Oregon.
She won a Gold medal in the Women’s 100m Hurdles at the World Athletics Championships, after breaking the world record with a time of 12.06 seconds.
