The Nigerian bobsled team that qualified the nation for its first-ever Winter Olympics is still learning about the sport, says Seun Adigun, the pilot.

Adigun alongside her brakemen Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga shared their inspiring story on America’s most popular show, Ellen Degeneres, on Monday.

“In Nigeria right now, everybody is going absolutely nuts. You know the crazy thing about it is most people don’t really understand what bobsled is like, Adigun said.

“They just know that the flag is raising high and they are excited. To be honest, that we are still learning how to do bobsled.”

The ladies made history on November 15, in Calgary, Canada when they qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The tournament is scheduled to start from February 6 to 25, 2018 in Pyeongchang county, South Korea.
