  2. 2. Jamaica is a country which is hot and sunny nearly all year. It has no snow. However, in 1987, two Jamaicans decided to start a bobsleigh team . Bobsleighing is a sport that takes place on Ice.
  3. 3. They had a lot of problems at the start. The people in the bobsleigh team had never seen snow, and there was little money for equipment . When the team started training , they crashed again and again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yAeLtIDBJI
  4. 4. They needed to raise money in order to take part in 1998 Winter Olympics in Canada. They tried to get people to donate, but Jamaicans thought that a bobsleigh team was a stupid idea. Jamaica had lots of athletes but never bobsleighers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCjiHb6QSdk&feature=related
  5. 5. They hired someone as a coach and eventually gathered a lot of fans. When they went to the Winter Olympics, other people didn´t want them there and made fun of them. But the spectators loved them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOb9YEQC20c&feature=related
