Ex BBNaija housemate, Mike Edwards has made history at the ongoing Commonwealth Games.

Though missing out on earning a medal, it was a huge honor for the reality star to finally represent Nigeria and the entire African Continent at 22nd edition of the Commonwealth Games.

Mike Edwards took part in men’s high jump final at the event in Birmingham, UK, jumping a height of 2.19m. He came 6th at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Celebrating his achievement, Edward shared a video of the event and wrote:

“SPOTLIGHT. BIG STAGE 🏟 HISTORY WAS MADE.

What an honor to finally represent Nigeria 🇳🇬 and the entire African Continent 🌍 at the Commonwealth Games ✅ 6th in the final and so many emotions to put in words. Thank you all for taking this journey with me ❤️ Season ‘22 #JobFinished 🙏🏿”

KFN earlier reported that Birmingham kicked off the Commonwealth Games in spectacular fashion, with an enthralling and hopeful ceremony at Alexander Stadium.

In a surprise appearance, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai emphasised the value of education, and as the baton relay came to a close, diver Tom Daley demonstrated his support for LGBTQ+ rights.

But perhaps the best moment came when a ceremony honouring Birmingham’s and the Commonwealth’s diversity featured a 10m tall animatronic bull charging into the stadium.

Following the conclusion of the athletes’ parade, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales were all warmly welcomed before host nation England arrived in a cloud of confetti and cranked up the volume with a rendition of We Will Rock You by the crowd.

The Games are now officially underway, with competitions starting on Friday and involving more than 5,000 athletes from 72 countries and territories competing in 280 medal events across 19 sports.
