After first gaining recognition on ice on entering their first ever Winter Olympics, Calgary in 1988, Jamaica is once again proving there is no stopping for the little island on the map! Taking the Caribbean to the world
From previous legends and onwards, including but by far not limited to the great Bob Marley, Usain Bolt, Tessanne Chin to name a few…the 2 man tropical Bobsledding team, Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon are ready to melt the ice in Russia, at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
For those not familiar with the movie ‘Cool Runnings’ which gave an account of the controversial Bobsleigh team coming out of Jamaica, see video below (includes snippets). Jamaica is ready again…the previous team may not have won but certainly had the world talking in awe of their brave achievement.
…Jamaica’s Bobsleigh team Coach Tom Samuel is certain the islanders can do it, efforts are currently underway and with the well needed funding, the team is ready to prove their worth on ice…check out video below:
