History! Nigeria’s Bobsled Team are heading to the Winter Olympics.
For the first time in its history, Nigeria will compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and it’s all thanks to the women’s bobsled team. Led by driver Seun Adigun and her teammates — Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga — the bobsled team qualified in Canada after completing the fifth of the required five races.
According to Seun Adigun who spoke to KweséESPN, “This is a huge milestone for sports in Nigeria. Nothing makes me prouder than to know that I can play a small role in creating opportunities for winter sports to take place in Nigeria. Our objective now is to be the best representation of Africa that the Winter Olympics have ever witnessed.”
The team is the first African team to qualify in the bobsled category. “This is a huge milestone for sports in Nigeria.”
As a fellow Nigerian, I am so proud of them and they should be very proud as well.
Proudly Nigerian ??????
