Winter Olympics: Nigeria finishes in disappointing 20th place in Heats 1 and 2

 

Nigeria’s first female skeleton athlete, Simidele Adeagbo, finished in the 20th position after Heats 1 and 2 of her event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Friday.
Adeagbo was one of 20 athletes in the event, but she is resting bottom of the table after finishing with a total time of 1:48.77 secs in both heats.
The Nigerian, wearing bib number 20, could only manage 54:19 and 54:58 in both heat 1 and 2 respectively.
Adeagbo would continue her campaign to possibly reach the medals table when the heats continue in the third and fourth rounds on Saturday.
Skeleton is a sport where individual riders head first on a small sled down an icy run, the lowest total time over four runs wins.
The Games which began on Feb.9 will end on Feb. 25
