The Nigerian paralympians made us proud earlier this year by excelling beyond our expectations
and shattering a bunch of world records. Presently, three other Nigerian athletes are set to make history again.
Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga want to put Nigeria on the map by being the first representatives at the
Winter Olympic Games come 2018 – in
Bobsled. Very few African countries participate in the Winter Olympics for obvious. reasons, but these badass women based in the United States 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.”
The three athletes have started a
GoFundMe campaign to raise $150,000
(around ₦70 million Nigerian rate) and create an awareness around the historical feat they are set to
accomplish and you can help them get
started by donating.
