3 Nigeria women set for history @Winter Olympics, seeks support on gofundme.com

Three Nigerian women, Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga have are all set to make history by being electing to be the first Nigerian representatives to qualify to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, in the sport of Bobsled, reports ITRealms.

This, ITRealms gathered, is coming as the trio are seeking support to make this dream a reality via gofundme.com.

As said by Seun Adigun in her gofundme.com campaign, they are all based in the United States and are determined to add Nigeria to the list as they vie for a spot at the event which will be taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

She also disclosed they have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds and create awareness around the historical feat they are set to accomplish in the next two years.
Adigun confirmed actually conceiving the idea, and went on to recruit her other team members, described the project as a difficult one, but also as one of the most impactful things she will ever initiate.

“The fate of Nigeria’s eligibility to be represented in the 2018 Winter Olympics rests exclusively on my ability to qualify as a competent driver. I decided to accept this responsibility and recruited two wonderful young women, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga, as my brakemen,” Adigun said.
