Have you watched watched Cool Runnings? 😏 Please go and watch it, then you would understand why I used that phrase 😁

Three bold, brave and beautiful Nigerian female athletes Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga who are based in the USA, are set to make history for Nigeria at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games holding in  Pyeongchang, South Korea in Bobsled.  

Bobsleigh or bobsled is a winter sport in which teams of two or four teammates make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked, iced tracks in a gravity-powered sled. Scary huh? 😨

As you all know (well for those who know exactly where Nigeria is situated πŸ˜€), Nigeria is a tropical region and doesn’t have subzero temperature that can facilitate winter sports. We have participated only in the Summer Olympics, which includes the Paralympics Games, where we have won medals in five different sporting events: Athletics, Boxing, Football, Taekwondo and Weightlifting. But these babes are determined to add Nigeria to that exclusive list of African countries, which include Ghana, Kenya and Zimbabwe. Way to go, babes!!! πŸ˜‰

The three athletes have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $150,000 (around ₦70 million – aboki rate, o!) and create an awareness around the historical feat they are set to accomplish. Please lets help our brave hearts by donating.
