Nigeria’s Chierika Okogu qualifies for Rowing Semi Finals as she made history as the first rower to represent Nigeria at the 2016 Olympics Games.

Chierika Ukogu qualified for the semi-final of the women’s single sculls rowing event in Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Ukogu finished fifth in Quarterfinal 3 and although she was initially ruled to have been knocked out, the Nigerian was called back.

The 24-year-old will now compete in Semifinal C/D 1 scheduled for Thursday, August 10, 3:30PM (Nigerian time).

Ukogu, 24, is the first Nigerian to represent the country in Rowing and she is very keen to go all the away in Rio.

The athlete, who is also a graduate of Stanford University, was grouped alongside two other Africans in her quarter final race.

One of them, Rouba Amina from Algeria, is with Ukogu in the semifinals.
