KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica once again created sport history as its women's bobsled team of Carrie Russell and Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian won bronze in the North American Cup held in Lake Placid in the United States of America (USA).
The Jamaican pair was third in 1:57.87 behind the winners Nicole Vogt and Bonnie Kilis of the USA with 1:57.70 and Canadians Julie Johnson and Janine McCue with 1:57.81.
It was the first podium finish for the sunshine island of Jamaica in the winter sport event held on ice.
Jamaican bobsledders have held a special, almost sentimental place in Olympic history since their novel entry at the 1988 Games in Calgary, Canada, which prompted the popular movie, Cool Runnings.
