Ogom Chijindu a serious Lingerie Footballer

Ogum Chijindu is a player in the Lingerie Football League and she is serious about football. Known as the “Nigerian Knockout”, she plays for the LA Temptations as a wide receiver and a safety.

As a wide receiver for the Los Angeles Temptations, she has proven that she is more than just a pretty body and face.  She is passionate about the sport and feels that if it takes wearing lingerie to get guys to watch a lady’s league of football, she is willing to do it.  According to an interview in MTV Clutch, her favorite player is Troy Polamalu and she loves Nigerian food.  She has always been involved in sports and started off playing soccer, track and volleyball, so for her, football was a natural  transition.
The Lingerie Football League was created in 2009 and was originated from the Super Bowl halftime alternative television special called the Lingerie Bowl, a pay-per-view event broadcast annually opposite the Super Bowl halftime show. The uniforms consist of shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, garters, bras, panties, and ice hockey-style helmets with clear plastic visors in lieu of face masks. A game is two 17 minute halves with a 15 minute halftime.  In some ways the game is almost like ice hockey meets football–the girls can be quite brutal to each other.
The game has been gaining ground and has been generating interest because these ladies can really play. There are now franchises in several cities with plans for more to open up in Canada, Australia and Europe.
