Still proud

"It's quite amazing, I'm overwhelmed with joy and overwhelmed with the idea of knowing that history was made and we gave everything we had to do it," Seun told .

"This was just one of those days that you can't really describe. Full of all kinds of emotions -- full of relief, full of history."

"I can only express myself with tears, just because it's been a long road and finally we've completed it. I can only imagine how it is back home in Nigeria,” Ngozi added.

No African nation has won a winter medal but Nigerian women are already planning to try again at the 2022 Beijing Olympics.
