The bobsled trio will start their campaign in Pyeongchang on Feb. 17 with scheduled training heats. Nigerians can catch a glimpse of the new stars at 4 pm. Nigerian time (10am EST). The team will participate in six training heats between Feb. 17 and Feb. 19.

Skeleton Women Heat

Simi Adeagbo will start competing on Feb. 17 for Nigerians at 2:20 am (Feb. 16 20:20 EST). The former  triple-jump athlete will be hoping to do much better though as, so far, in four training runs, she has finished bottom of the pack.
