nigeria, olympics, rio 2016

Chierika Ukogu, fondly called Coco has made history by becoming the first Nigerian ever to qualify for the semi finals of the women's single sculls rowing event at the Olympics.

The self sponsored athlete and Stanford graduate has been training with the US Olympic team before this competition and had to put med school on hold.

Ukogu's quarter finals was a 5th position finish. Hopefully, she makes it to the finals and eventually wins a medal for Nigeria.
