After a solid start to the bobsled season, Driver Seun Adigun and brakewomen Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga completed the last of five qualifying races for the 2018 Olympics, becoming the first people to represent Nigeria at the Winter Olympics. Ever. As if that wasn't enough - Adigun and the team are the first to represent the entire continent of Africa in bobsledding.

This isn't Adigun's first rodeo, either. She represented Nigeria in track and field in the 2012 Olympics before realizing the opportunity to grow the bobsled scene in Africa. Find out more in this interview from Okay Africa.
