The Coolest of Runnings: Nigerian Bobsled Team is Women Only

We're saying all the yes to the three female athletes from Nigeria, who have qualified in Bobsledding for the 2018 Winter Olympics. They are the first women in any sport to represent their country in the competition.

Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omega made history after successfully completing five races held across North America in Utah, Whistler and Calgary. And now they are embarking on an all new adventure in Pyeongchang, South Korea in February. 

"Their hard work was inspiring and I hope Nigerians can appreciate what it took for them to achieve this," Solomon Ogba, president of the Bobsled and Skeleton Sports Federation of Nigeria said, as reported by The Independent. "I have watched them train and work hard to represent Nigeria at the Winter Olympics in a very technical and high-risk sport and they have achieved that."
