Jamaica’s bobsleigh team are determined to overcome financial issues and challenges thrown up by the COVID-19 pandemic as their four-man line-up returns to the Winter Games for the first time in 24 years.
Jamaica’s bobsleigh teams have been a welcome sight at Winter Games ever since the nation, beat the odds to qualify for the 1988 Calgary Olympics which inspired the feel-good Disney film ‘Cool Runnings’.
But the team faced difficulties in their preparation for the Feb. 4-20 Beijing Games due to travel restrictions, with the members training together for the first time only in September.
