Nigerian weightlifter, Felix Ekpo, has broken the Africa and Commonwealth Games records in the 77 kg category.

Ekpo achieved this feat in the on-going London 2012 Olympic Games when he lifted 151 kg (snatch) and 180 kg (Clean and Jerk), making his total score 311kg.

His performance at the snatch category is the best yet at Africa and Commonwealth levels. The previous Commonwealth record belongs to Peter Yukio of Nauru.

After finishing second in his Group ‘B’, Ekpo was adjudged 8th in the final standing as the first to sixth lifters of the ‘A’ category relegated the Nigerian lifter outside the podium.

Minister of Sports and Chairman of the NSC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, was however impressed with Ekpo’s performance even though he did not win a medal.
