NIGERIAN BOBSLED TEAM MAKES HISTORY BY QUALIFYING FOR 2018 WINTER OLYMPICS

NIGERIAN BOBSLED TEAM MAKES HISTORY BY QUALIFYING FOR 2018 WINTER OLYMPICS
Seun Adigun and Akuoma Omeoga, Ngozi Onwumere, collectively the bobsled team from Nigeria, have made history by becoming the first Nigerians to ever qualify for the Winter
Olympics. The speedy trio is all set to compete in the XXIII Olympic Winter Games being held in PyeongChang, South Korea, this coming February. Adigun, the team’s driver, and Omeoga and Onwumere, the brakewomen, qualified for the Olympic games after turning in strong performances in a series of five races held in Utah, Whistler and Calgary.




The women announced their feat with a post on Instagram in which they said, “Ecstatic to say the least! To see a mere dream come to reality is a true blessing.” Though their participation in the 2018 games will be unprecedented for Winter Olympic competition, it will not be the first time Adigun has competed at the Olympic level. In 2012, she ran the 100-meter hurdles at the Summer Olympics. Still, the gravity of her team’s accomplishment was not lost on her as she noted their qualification was a “huge milestone for sports in Nigeria.”
