4 Jamaicans In A Bathtub: The True Story Behind The Hit Movie, Cool Runnings

Devon Harris, Olympic athlete shared his inspiring story at A-fest, Montego Bay that later became the plot for one of the most popular Olympic movies of all time, Cool Runnings.

About The Video


It was 1988 in Calgary, Canada. Athletes from all around the globe gathered for the Winter Olympics including a Jamaican bobsled team with an ambition to compete against winter sports champions.

The only problem was that up until a few months before that day none of them has seen snow. Ever.

This is the story that inspired the multi-million dollar movie, Cool Runnings.
