A 25-year old Nigerian woman, Moe Sasegbon is one of the casts of “Wonder Woman,” an American superhero film, which many look forward to seeing this summer.
In the movie, Moe plays the character of an Amazon called to fight uninvited German soldiers.
Although she appeared in just one scene in the movie, she is part of the success story as reports say that the movie raked in over $600m worldwide.
Moe is a heptathlete but a graduate of physiotherapy from the Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
She was introduced to sports when she was nine-years-old, however, her talents were recognized at 14 by her Physical Education teacher after she moved to the UK.
She was introduced to heptathlon when she joined a local athletics club and made her first competitive debut for Nigeria at the 11th All African Games, which took place in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo, in 2015.
In an interview with Muscle Food, Moe explained that her most memorable moment was winning the senior girls high jump competition at the English Schools championships.
Moe says her mom, a self-taught swimmer, who used to be a swimmer for Nigeria and ultimately trained herself to become one of the best swimmers in the country is her hero.
Moe will reportedly have a prominent role in an upcoming movie, “Justice League.

⚔️ Wonder Woman ⚔️ Today is the day!!!! Seeing it with my family, they're more excited than me…until they realise they will only spot my foot 😂 nevertheless I am so proud and still in amazement that I got the opportunity to be a part (however small) of making this iconic movie great! We had 6 months of some weird and wonderful training under the guidance of @pvtlighthouse @wfmft @mario_donato to sculpt our 'Amazonian Abs' and 3 weeks of filming in Italy. Talk about opportunity of a life time! So grateful I could add that chapter, and meeting some of the most amazing women to my life! 👊🏾 Amazons Unite 👊🏾
