Nigeria has never been in the Winter Olympics, until now.  Later this month, Nigeria’s women’s bobsled team will be headed to Pyeongchang, South Korea, to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. It will be the first African bobsled team in Olympic history.  “This is a huge milestone for sports in Nigeria,” bobsled driver Seun Adigun told Kwesé ESPN. “Nothing makes me prouder than to know that I can play a small role in creating opportunities for winter sports to take place in Nigeria.”
