Meet the Women Who Make Up Nigeria's First-Ever Bobsled Team!

By

The 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, are just two months away, and ET is teaming up with Visa to introduce you to the female athletes breaking barriers on a worldwide stage.

ET's Kevin Frazier caught up with Africa's first-ever bobsled team, Seun Adigun, Akuoma Omeoga and Ngozi Onwumere, who shot to fame after it was announced that they would be representing Nigeria at the Winter Games.

"People have recognized us and we never really say it's us initially. We just kind of like, wait for the reaction to come," Omeoga explained. "They're like, 'Yeah, we heard that there's this Nigerian bobsled team,' [and we just laugh]." 

The women raised money for a real bobsled after practicing on a wooden sled, but in PyeongChang, they'll be able to pay for food and souvenirs with Visa's wearable devices. And this new shopping experience isn't just for athletes -- fans can use the devices as well. 

"You just take your pin and tap it," U.S. hockey player Hilary Knight demonstrated. "Just like that!" 

Visa is a proud worldwide sponsor of the Olympic Games. The opening ceremony of the Winter Games kicks off on Feb. 9, 2018.
