The first Nigerian to do the North Pole Marathon tells the BBC how proud she felt to plant her country’s flag in the snow at the end of the race.
Tuedon Morgan, 42, said Antarctica, where she has been on two previous trips, was a playground compared to her experience at the North Pole last week:

The North Pole was extremely difficult for me: It was so cold, with temperatures of -41 C, and I noticed that my body was losing a lot of energy – it was like the magnetic field was sucking all my energy out.
