PyeongChang, South Korea after partnering the Bobsled and Skeleton

Nigeria, thus becoming the first African team (men or women) to
qualify in the Bobsled category.
Also making a first appearance at the Winter Olympics is Simidele
Adeagbo, who became the first African woman to qualify for the
Skeleton category.
President of BSFN, Solomon Ogba, applauded Travelstart and KLM Royal
Dutch Airlines for identifying with the Federation.

with Nigeria’s Bobsled Team. It is a novel initiative to partner these
history making Nigerians.
“The Federation is proud of this development and it can only get
better. Be assured that our team is ready to achieve more in
PyeongChang. We salute Nigerians for the support so far,” Ogba said in
a press release from the Federation made available to the media.
BSFN broadcast partner, KWESE, will showcase the Nigerian team on
Kwese Free Sports.
