Jamaican bobsled team set on Sochi

Flashbacks of Cool Runnings will certainly emerge as the Jamaican bobsled team is expected to qualify for the Sochi Olympics at this weekend’s event in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon make up the two-man team hoping to end the country’s 12-year absence from bobsled competition.

Watts, 46, has come out of retirement to lead the Jamaican team, which, if it qualifies, would make him the oldest Olympic bobsled competitor by eight years. Watts originally competed in the 1994 Olympics and then retired after missing out on the 2006 games, according to reports from the International Business Times.

“Man, you should see me! Age is just a number. You’d never believe I was a man of 46… You’d say maybe 30, 35. I’m big, dark, and handsome, like a six-foot, 235-pound runnin’ back,” Watts confidently told The Telegraph.

Even if the Caribbean team does qualify, the athletes don’t know if they’ll have the funding to fly to Sochi. Watts reportedly put up his own money to fly the team to Evanston, Wyoming so the team could train in nearby Park City, Utah. Early on, the team was cut from a four-man team to a two-man team due to lack of funding.

If they qualify, you can help the “Hottest Thing On Ice” through its website.
