Anambra Spirit Resonates In Birmingham At The Ongoing Commonwealth Games, United Kingdom

Posted on August 7, 2022


True to the lyric contained in the concluding stanza of the Anambra State anthem; “lift the spirit of Anambra”, the Anambra-born Njideka Iyiazi won Gold in the women’s F56/57 Shot-put, at the ongoing Commonwealth games in Birmingham, United Kingdom. She has indeed made the state and Nigeria proud.
She made it with a throw of 10.03 meters.
This is congratulations to an outstanding Onye Anambra for making the state proud, flying the Anambra State spirit high in far away United Kingdom.
This is celebrating competence and resilience which brand Anambra represents.
Prior to this victory, the 49 year old Iyiazi had won Silver medal during the 2004 Athens Paralympics (javelin throw), won gold at the 2007 Beijing Paralympics (Shot Put), Bronze in each of the London  2012 Paralympics (Shot Put), 2016 (Discuss) and Tokyo 2000 Paralympics (Shot Put) respectively.
Just like the Anambra Anthem says, “with all our hearts”, may we continue to lift our homeland high, thereby promoting the Anambra spirit.
The Governor, Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, is proud of these exploits and commends the indefatigable spirit of Ndi Anambra.
