How Does the Jamaican BobSleigh Team Do It?
How can the tropical paradise of Jamaica have a BobSleigh Team in the Winter Olympics?
The team in 1988, Devon Harris, Dudley Stokes, Michael White, Freddy Powell, and Chris Stokes, debuted at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. The team was coached by Howard Siler, an Olympic bobsledder for the United States in 1972 and 1980. They quickly became very popular, largely because of their status as the ultimate “underdog” story of the games.
Full team now: SELDWYN MORGAN, JOEL ALEXANDER, DANIEL MAYHEW, ZEBIESHA JOHNSON, LISA FRAZER, TYRONE MULLINGS, MURRAY MYERS, SURF FENLATOR-VICTORIAN, JAZMINE FENLATOR-VICTORIAN, and ANTHONY WATSON.
