Nigeria’s Female Bobsled Team Qualify For Winter Olympics

The female trio of Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga are in the news again as they have become the first African team ever to quality for the bobsled category.

The three-member team which was only formed in 2016 have written their name in the history books as they are the first to represent Nigeria at the winter event, to be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February next year.

They successfully scaled through the five races required to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games which will be taking place at PyeongChang.

Speaking in a recent interview, Adigun who is the team’s driver said, “This is a huge milestone for sports in Nigeria,” driver Adigun told KweséESPN. “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.”

The former track stars have quickly gone on to become the centre attention since they first revealed their intention to take Nigeria to the Winter Olympics by creating a GoFund me account to get donations towards achieving their dreams last year.
