Igali provided the perfect capper for Canada in Sydney when he won Canada’s first and so far only Olympic gold medal in men’s wrestling. Born and raised in Nigeria, Igali had stayed in Canada after competing at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria. After his final victory, Igali honoured his new country by laying the Canadian flag in the centre of the ring, dancing around it and kissing it.
