Sledge hockey - 'murderball on ice'

The Great Britain men's sledge hockey team, who are seeking qualification for their first Winter Paralympics since 2006 when they travel to Turin, Italy, next week, give an insight into their sport, describing it as 'murderball on ice.'

The squad, which consists of several London 2012 Paralympians, including javelin thrower Nathan Stephens and sailor Stephen Thomas, need to finish in the top-three of their six-strong group to reach the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

The GB team begin their campaign against the hosts on Monday and captain Ian Warner tells BBC Sport's Nick Hope he believes they can defy the odds.
