Feel the Rhythm! Feel the Rhyme!
It's bobsled time! Yes, even for the Jamaicans! They are headed back to the Olympics this year after failing to qualify for Torino. The unlikly bobsled team went down in history in the 1988 Calgary Olympics when they first qualified. After crashing out of their first race and walking across the finish line, they came back four years later to take 14th place, just ahead of the United States.
One of the inaugural team members, Devon Harris, has been helping the two-man team train in Vancouver for a few months. They are hoping to do well this year, after placing 11th in the Lake Placid America's Cup. Even if they don't make the podium, at least they'll be bringing the cool factor.
