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.
