Nigeria are on the brink of a shock qualification for the women’s bobsled at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
The Super Eagles team chalked up qualifying run number five in Calgary this week.
Having achieved the qualifying standard, they now just need to stay in the world’s top 40 to make it to South Korea.
Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga would become the first African team to reach a bobsled event.
Despite their most recent run being on the same track as the famous Jamaican men’s team in 1988, they want more than just a movie making about their journey.
Cool Runnings was the 1993 hit film that came from the Games held in Canada five years previously.
But American-born driver Adigun wants to steer her trailblazers towards the podium. She said:
“A lot of our goals have been met just establishing this entire entity, starting this process and making our way to the games.
“Obviously, the bigger goal is to just be as competitive as we can and obviously shoot for the podium.”
Adigun previously represented her country in the 100 metres hurdles at the 2012 summer Games in London.
But she turned her mind to snowier climbs two years later when she knocked together her first sled in a garage in Texas, USA.
She has also spent time as a breakwoman in the US bobsled programme.
The trio turned to crowdfunding to raise the estimated $150,000 that could help make their winter dream a reality.
And it may yet do so without one of the Games’ big hitters.
Russia’s participation is in doubt amid the fallout from revelations regarding their state-sponsored doping programme.
The previous Winter Olympics were held in the Russian resort of Sochi in 2014.
Nigeria won’t be the only first-timers if they make it, either.
Ecuador, Eritrea, Kosovo and Malaysia could all be donning their hats and scarves for the first time in south east Asia.
