Chris Stafford's guest is former track and field Seun Adigun who has already established herself as a hurdler when she competed at the 2012 Olympic Games. Sport has been her life since a child she played everything she could growing up in Chicago from flag football to tennis. She was an avid basketball player as well as track and field athlete in high school. She is a three-time Nigerian National Champion and a two-time African Continental Champion and holds a Masters Degree in Physical Education. Seun’s focus has shifted now from the athletics track to the bobsled run and has her sights set on the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeonchang. Her team of Ngozi [UNGARZI] Onwumere and Akuoma [OKARMA] Omeoga is set to become the first Nigerian women’s Bobsled team having qualified for the games. Seun started a fund raising campaign and estimates their Olympic goal is going to cost them $150,000 but it’s a gift she wants to give to her native country.
