Nigeria’s flag was raised high on Friday in PyeongChang, South Korea, as the 2018 Winter Olympics officially kicked off.

The Nigerian team in Korea is made up of four women – Ngozi Onwumere, Akuoma Omeoga, and Seun Adigun will compete in the Bobsled event while Simi Adeagbo will compete in the Skeleton event.

Adeagbo goes first in the Skeleton event, which starts on February 12 at 1:35 p.m. and the medals presentation is scheduled for Saturday, February 17.

The Bobsled team gets into action on February 17, with their medals ceremony scheduled for February 21.

The Games is to be known as that of ‘Peace’, greatly encapsulated by the joint march by North and South Korean athletes and the participation from tropical countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Tonga, and Jamaica; who are all part of the 91 countries represented.
