NIGERIAN BOBSLED TEAM APPEARS ON ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW
Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga, who make up the iconic Nigerian bobsled team were guests on the popular Ellen Degeneres show.
The trio placed qualified Nigeria for its first ever appearance at the Winter Olympics and they have since become an inspiration to women all over.
Speaking with the host of the show Ellen Degeneres, Adigun the pilot of the team said,
“In Nigeria right now, everybody is going absolutely nuts. You know the crazy thing about it is most people don’t really understand what bobsled is like, Adigun said.
“They just know that the flag is raising high and they are excited. To be honest, that we are still learning how to do bobsled.”
While Nigerians and foreigners have been cheering them on, these women will remain a point of reference for years to come.
