Africa Dreams Big As 2018 Winter Olympics Begin

This year, not only will the world see the largest Winter Olympics games ever, but Africa too, will fly more of its flags at the opening ceremony than ever before. Since the first appearance by an African nation in 1960, a total of 13 African countries have been represented at the games, with at least one African country participating every year since 1984. This year though is a game changer. With a total of eight countries participating, the continent now crosses fingers in the hope that athletes will return home with medals.
