 In News

Eight African countries will be competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

As one of the world’s hottest continents, Africa lacks the climate for winter sports such as skiing, bobsleigh and snowboarding.

But despite this disadvantage, competitors from a record number of nations (Nigeria, Eritrea, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, South Africa, Morocco and Togo) will be represented at Pyeongchang 2018.

It is history in the making for countries like Nigeria and Eritrea, who are making their debut at the Winter Olympics.
