World renowned black professional polo player, Uneku Atawodi, will this week share the story of her spectacular foray into the male dominated  world of equestrian sports on African Voices, a magazine programme of the Cable News Network sponsored by telecommunications giant, Globacom.
A vignette of the edition indicated that the polo queen who is popularly addressed as Neku holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Equestrian Science, a Masters degree in International Business and a British Horse Society stage 4 riding accreditation.
She will be  taking viewers through her journey into professional polo which began when she fell in love with horses at age 13 and how she stuck to her determination to excel in her chosen  sport, in spite of  subtle disapproval from family members.
With a legendary passion for polo which developed from her fascination with “the smell of dirty leather,” Neku has carved a niche for herself as a legend who has not only played  professional polo in over fourteen countries, but continues to  represent Nigeria at the Federation of International Polo.
Globacom said 28 year-old Neku would be joined on the programme by two other sports icons, namely Bianca Buitendag  of Victoria Bay, South Africa, and Shehzana Anwar of Nairobi, Kenya, who are equally setting confounding records in sports. The three sports icons will feature on the CNN magazine programme which will be on air at 7.30 p.m. today, on Monday at 11:30 p.m. and on Tuesday at 5.30 a.m.
