Meet the 3 Nigerian amazons taking Nigeria to the Winter Olympics for the first time ever!!

When we hear ‘Winter’, what comes to mind are snow and ice. Nigeria is a tropical country, which means this place is HOT (as most of us living here can testify), so it is therefore a surprise that three brave women want to put the country on the map by being the first representatives at the Winter Olympic Games come 2018…in Bobsled.

Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga, all based in the USA are determined to add Nigeria to that exclusive list of African countries – which include Ghana, Kenya and Zimbabwe.

According to Konbini.com, Seun Adigun, who refers to the project as her ‘gift to Nigeria’, said:

The success of this bobsled team will positively affect millions of people all over the world and will represent monumental international advancements in social, athletic, and economic statuses. 

Together, we can demonstrate that nothing is impossible with a little faith, support and willingness to persevere.

The three athletes have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $150,000 (around N70 million) to create awareness around the historical feat they are set to accomplish.
