Kid Keen 47/Notable Nigerian Sport Ambassadors
In this project, we will add and improve content on Notable Nigerian Sport Ambassadors in Wikidata. These are sports men and women who have won major competitions for Nigeria both in the international, continental and national competitions. There is a substantial lack of content in this area especially female winners which I and my wikidata teammates in this project will create and improve.
