There will be a lot of sports firsts at this year’s Olympic Winter Games:

- A group of Nigerian athletes will be the first African team to take part in the bobsled competition.
- Maame Biney will appear on Team USA after becoming the first African-American female speedskater to qualify for the Games.
- A combination of North and South Korean athletes will battle for gold in women’s ice hockey, the first time the nations have unified as one team in more than 25 years.
