Nigerian girls set to feature at Winter Olympic Games in 2018

By Our Correspondent
Three Nigerian born Americans, Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga have vowed to be the country’s first representatives at the Winter Olympic Games scheduled to hold in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018.
So far, only few African countries have participated in the Winter Olympics Games for obvious reasons of climate but these trio who are based in the United States of America (USA) are determined to add Nigeria to that exclusive list of African countries – which include Ghana, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
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.”
To actualise their dream, the three athletes have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $150,000 (around ₦70 million) create an awareness around the historical feat they are set to accomplish; and you can help them get started by donating.
