Three Women Making History! Nigerian Bobsled team feature on The Ellen DeGeneres Show



The Nigerian Bobsled team otherwise known as ‘The Ice Blazers’ who shocked the world as they qualified for the winter Olympics has caught the attention of one of our favourite TV hosts, Ellen DeGeneres.

The team were guests on the Ellen Show which aired today, as they shared their inspiring story as the first African team to compete for Bobsled medals at the Winter Olympics, which started off as a dream for the team’s pilot, Seun Adigun and her brakemen, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga.
