Feel the Rhythm Feel The Rhyme GET ON UP IT'S BOB SLED TIME...COOOOOOL RUNNINGS!
Jamaica is sending a four-man bobsled team to the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing next month for the first time in over two decades after qualifying on Monday.
Jamaica first competed in bobsled at the Calgary 1988 Olympic Games inspiring the iconic 'Cool Runnings' film and generations of athletes to come. In addition to making a return to the event, Team Jamaica is also sending athletes in the two-man bob and the women's mono bobsled, marking the first time in Olympic history that Jamaica has qualified in three bobsled events.
Team Jamaica last competed in the event in 1998, 10 years after they first debuted at the Winter Games in Calgary. The famous story of the team, composed of Devon Harris, Dudley Stokes, Michael White, Freddy Powell and Chris Stokes, inspired the popular 1993 Disney movie "Cool Runnings."
