Seun had led the Bobsled team without the help of the Nigerian government before Simidele was inspired to join in as a Skeleton athlete.

On behalf of their colleagues, Seun and Simidele were received by Buhari, who gave them a presidential handshake and also commended their efforts in making history for Nigeria.

“Words cannot express the joy and honor I feel after being received by the Honorable President Muhammadu Buhari of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria. Thank you Honorable Sports Minister Solomon Dalung for additionally having a personal reception for our BSFN athlete representatives,” Seun said.
