January 12th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Bobsled

Video of the original Jamaican Bobsled team, from the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary Canada, that inspired the movie ‘Cool Runnings’ can’t be shown here.

In the movie they show the original footage of when they crashed, but many other parts of the true story have been changed or embellished for the movie.
