Jamaican Bobsled Team to Return to the Winter Olympics for the First Time in 20 Years

Much like the premise of Disney’s Cool Runnings, the Jamaican Bobsled team has qualified for the next Winter Olympics for the first time! Team Jamaica will participate in 3 (potentially 4) separate bobsled events for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, the Captial of China. The official @teamjamaica Instagram account shared the news along with the caption:

t will be fire on ice as Team Jamaica ?? secured their spot at the 2022 Beijing #WinterOlympics. This will be the first time Jamaica will be represented in three Olympic bobsled events: our four-man bobsled, two-man and women’s monobob (new Olympic event). We missed a spot in the two-woman on a tiebreaker but can get in as first alternate if one qualified nation gives up a spot.

During a featured story on The Today Show, Team Jamaica was bursting with pride and excitement to represent their nation on the world stage at the Olympics. Brakeman Nimroy Turgott shared, “I am absolutely buzzing, I am happy and I am proud of myself and my teammates and what we have accomplished. We are prepared to go to the Olympics to put on a great show.’

“We’ve put in a lot of work in the last four years to achieve what we’ve achieved. Over the lockdown we’ve even come up with our own way to get the training done because we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned when it came to qualifying for the Games,” added pilot Shanwayne Stephens.

Congratulations to Team Jamaica and we can’t wait to see you on the ice! ??
