Meet the Nigerian bobsleigh team aiming to make history

Three former Nigerian sprinters are aiming to become the country’s first athletes to compete at the Winter Olympics.

Their chosen sport? Bobsleigh.

Seun Adigun, who competed at London 2012, is hoping to reach the 2018 games in South Korea along with her team-mates Akuoma Omeoga and Ngozi Onwumere.

Seun has been telling BBC Sportsworld’s Lee James about her first experience in the sled and what it would mean to represent her country.
