Seun Adigun | Olympic Athlete & Global Ambassador What is next when you’re in your 30s and you’ve already accomplished so much academically and athletically? You conquer your fears and become a student of life. Dr. Seun Adigun, a first-generation Nigerian raised in Chicago, rose to sports stardom early on as a multi-talented high school athlete. She then showed the world how brightly she could shine at the London 2012 Olympic Games, representing Team Nigeria and picking up many accolades along the way on the African continent. Adigun hung up her spikes after the 2012 London Olympic Games, but that isn’t where it ended for her sports career. She bravely pursued the challenge of breaking into winter sports and soon became the first African Bobsled driver to qualify and lead a team from Nigeria to the Winter Olympic Games 2018 in Pyeongchang. Her remarkable achievements captured the world audience from appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres show to shaking hands with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. By the age of 30 she had earned; a B.S. in Kinesiology (University of Houston, 2009), a M.Ed in Physical Education (University of Houston, 2011), a M.S. in Exercise and Health Sciences (University of Houston, Clear Lake 2017), a B.S. in Human Biology (Texas Chiropractic College, 2017), and a Doctorate of Chiropractic (Texas Chiropractic College, 2017). Adigun believes that “impossible is nothing” and that mantra has carried her through her life and career.
