Nigeria has won a gold medal in Para powerlifting every year for fourteen years. This is, in large part, thanks to the leadership of Are Feyisetan (pronounced Fay-is-etan). Feyisetan is a former Para powerlifter turned coach of the Nigerian Powerlifting Federation (NPLF). He assumed that position in 2006 and has led Nigeria to an extremely decorated resume in the sport for the last decade and a half.
At the three Paralympic Games that Nigerian Para powerlifting has been under the guidance of Feyisetan, it has won 24 medals, 14 of which were gold. Nigeria has been the best performing African nation in the sport at each of those Games.
