American tennis star and world No.1, Serena Williams, could not hide her admiration and support for Africa’s first female bobsled team at the Winter Olympics. This video literally gave me chills, I am so excited to watch Nigeria compete in the winter Olympics bobsledding race the first time an African country has ever competed in bobsledding! Akwasi Frimpong, Ghana’s first skeleton athlete also qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics with 14th- and 15th-place finishes in Lake Placid last week. Frimpong is the second athlete to represent Ghana at the winter sport. Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omega are US-based track and field athletes who decided to compete in the winter sport for more laurels.
