You probably did not know that Nigeria has a Bob sleigh team.

Meet Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga – our Olympians competing in 2019.

In an interview with BBC, the team talked about how they plan to make history. The team of three U.S. based athletes had announced their intent last year, 2016. They had to battle ice and cold for their country.

So, these women will be representing Nigeria at the Winter Olympics Games next year, 2018. Believe it or not, the women only need to win three more games to qualify for the Winter Olympics.

One of the ladies noted her first experience in a bobsled: “It’s like rolling down a hill in a trash can.”
