Video - Nigeria eyeing to capture a sprint medal at the Tokyo 2020
A few years ago, Nigeria was a dominant force in athletics Track and Field events. Nigerian sprinters were ranked among the best in the world, often competing with the Americans and Jamaicans. The country has produced among the highest numbers of sub-10 runners in the 100 meters in Africa. But athletics has taken a nosedive in the country. In the last two Olympics, Nigeria did not win a single medal. But one young Nigerian is driving an initiative to change that in the next Olympics in Tokyo in 2020 as CGTN's Deji Badmus now reports.
