Bose Omolayo

Powerlifting

Bose Omolayo is a Paralympic Powerlifter and polio survivor. She shattered her own World Record (WR) and set a new one of 138kg to win Nigeria’s sixth GOLD medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Coming into the competition as the firm favorite to win, Omolayo lived up to the expectation. She has passion and love for fashion and can do several types of hair styles like braiding, weaving, twinning and fixing etc. This is she has done all her life; her great performances have earned her a spot on the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) July Athlete of the Month' shortlist. Like she profoundly says, “it is all God’s miracle and his blessings that I am living a dream. From nobody, I have become somebody.”
