These Nigerian athletes prove–once again–that we can do anything if we put our minds to it!
This week it was announced that the African bobsled team have qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics!
According to CNN, driver Seun Adigun and brakewomen Akuoma Omeoga and Ngozi Onwumere are part of the first African team to ever qualify in this particular event in Olympic history.
In 2012, Adigun, who is also a track star, competed in the women’s 100 metre hurdles at the summer Olympics. She told The Guardian that this dream is so huge and they have serious goals for next year.
“We have goals,” Adigun said. “I know the goal I have as a driver is to drive us to the podium, that’s just the competitor in me.
“A lot of our goals have been met just establishing this entire entity, starting this process and making our way to the games. “Obviously, the bigger goal is to just be as competitive as we can and obviously shoot for the podium.”
