🔊 "It's not just about Nigerians. It's not just about Africans. Its about being able to utilize every single ounce of what it is you represent. Whether it's as a woman. Whether it's just as an African American. Or someone of dark color. Or some type of minority, or whatever, whatever it is that you represent is what we are trying to represent". - @seun_msamazing
🎖 She's an Olympic athlete and record holder, who is the former 100m hurdles Nigerian and African Champion - this week on the NDINI podcast we're talking to Seun Adigun, the first African to ever compete at both the summer and winter Olympic games!
🎖 Seun and her team mates @akuomaomeoga
made history at the 2018 winter Olympics in Korea as the first team to ever represent Nigeria at a winter Olympics. This was despite the team having been formed less than two years earlier!
🎖 But before she was bobsledder, she was a 100m Olympic hurdler, who competed at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Leading up to the Olympics, Seun was in what she describes as the best shape of her life. But she developed a stress fracture in her leg shortly before the Olympic games. Doctors advised her against competing, fearing that her leg would break. But Seun wasn't willing to let her many years of training go to waste, and she competed against her doctor's advice. But sheer will wasn’t enough - the games ended with her most disappointing competitive performance ever.
🎖 It was while Seun was recovering from her injury and thinking about what to do next that she tried bobsledding for the first time!
