Jamaica created sports history as its women's bobsled team of Carrie Russell and Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian won bronze in the North American Cup held in Lake Placid in the United States of America (USA).

The Jamaican pair was third in 1:57.87 behind the winners Nicole Vogt and Bonnie Kilis of the USA with 1:57.70 and Canadians Julie Johnson and Janine McCue with 1:57.81.

The Jamaican bobsled team is asking for $60,000 to hire a coach through a crowdfunding campaign. The team hope to qualify men’s and women’s bobsled teams for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which will mark the 30-year anniversary of their Olympic debut in Calgary, which inspired the 1993 Disney film “Cool Runnings.”
