Watch out sporting world, with a little faith, support and perseverance these three ladies are looking to make history for Nigeria! Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga are putting all their efforts and belief into becoming Nigeria's first Bobsled team (male or female), qualifying for the 2018 Winter Games and establishing a bobsledding federation for the entire African continent! Pretty impressive wouldn't you say. 

 

 

The team are already working on making their dreams and aspirations for their country a reality with Adigun creating a GoFundMe page to put their plan into action before 2018. As well as their Olympic pursuits going down in the history books, Adigun sees their sporting dreams becoming a win for people across the globe with it representing "monumental international advancements in social, athletic, and economic statuses."

 

 

The female trio are aiming to raise $150,000 to cover the costs of a bobsled, tools, sled runners, shipping gear and more. Despite having only raised five percent of their goal they remain confident that they'll reach their target in time to compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018. The power trio is seemingly speaking their anticipated victory into existence, by sharing  the perfect recipe for their foreseeable success: “A little faith, support and willingness to persevere.”The team will also be bringing their fans on the journey with them as they are also working on launching a website to document their journey.

 

Don't miss Travis Jay and Candace catch up with the inspiring trio ahead of their historic journey to the Olympics on #TheVibe  on The Beat London 103.6FM this Saturday 17th December from 10am-1pm.
