PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — There’s something to be said for having a dream so insane, so outlandish, so far outside the realm of possibility that you just throw yourself into it and see what happens.

For Seun Adigun, a hurdler who represented Nigeria in the 2012 Summer Olympics, the dream started simple: figure a way to get back to the Olympics one way or another. But the dream soon blossomed into a legitimate movement, one that could inspire generations of Nigerian athletes.

This reminds me of the film, "Cool Runnings", about the Jamaican bobsled team.
