PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - Nigeria made its Winter Olympics debut in PyeongChang with the first bobsled team to ever come from Africa.
On that team is 25-year-old Minnesota native Akuoma Omeoga.
She and her teammates started their unlikely Olympic journey in a Houston garage with a makeshift wooden sled.
Sounds a little like déjà vu from 30 years ago, when Jamaica sent their first-ever bobsled team to the Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada.
KARE 11's Zach Lashway spoke with Angelina and Ikwuagwu Omeoga, Akuoma’s parents.
