Commonwealth Appearances

Nobody likes a challenge quite like Lawrence Okoye. 

Having never played the sport before, Okoye announced his intentions to play in the NFL in 2013 and was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. 

That followed a 12th place finish in the discus final at London 2012, and he’ll be hoping to challenge again this summer, having won gold at the 2021 European Athletics Team Championships.
