Nigeria closed the Rio Paralympics with eight golds, two silvers and two bronze medals to finish 17th in the medal table and top among African countries.

Compare that with the performance of Nigeria's able-bodied Olympians a few weeks earlier, who brought home just one bronze medal, finishing a lowly 78th in the Rio 2016 medal table.

Nigeria's Paralympians, who first competed in Barcelona in 1992, have always outperformed the Olympians.At the London Olympics four years ago, the green and white flag was never hoisted at a medal ceremony.

In contrast, the Paralympic team returned home with 13 medals.
